In accordance with Cabinet Office rules on publication of certain financial and organisational information, we reproduce below the information which has been furnished to the Cabinet Office and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Read the latest set of published BIS transparency data on and the BIS website.

As part of the transparency agenda, Government has made the following commitments with regard to procurement and contracting:

  • All new central government tender documents for contracts over £10,000 to be published on a single website from September 2010 with this information to be made available to the public free of charge.
  • All new central government contracts to be published in full from January 2011.

Visit the Contracts Finder website. All tender documents and contracts which meet the above criteria are published there.

Suppliers and those organisations looking to bid for public sector contracts should be aware that if they are awarded a new government contract, the resulting contract between the supplier and government will be published. In some circumstances, limited redactions will be made to some contracts before they are published in order to comply with existing law and for the protection of national security.
