Advance Tender Alerts

Stay ahead of your competitors with contract renewal notifications, giving you a headstart of up to 18 months.

How can Advance Tender Alerts help my business?

Rather than manually tracking every contract with renewal options, you can rely on Tenders Direct to keep you informed. 

Unlike other services, we base our alerts on contract end dates, not Contract Award Notices, giving you a more accurate and comprehensive view of the market. 

With Advance Tender Alerts, you can:

  • Choose how much advance notice you would like, with options for 3, 6, 9, 12 or 18 months – more time gives you a bigger headstart over your competitors.
  • Get sight of all relevant renewal options in the UK and Republic of Ireland
  • Plan your bid strategy in advance and allocate your resources effectively.
  • Engage with buyers early, conducting research and building relationships to gain an advantage.
  • Explore collaborative options with other suppliers, such as forming a consortium or partnership to increase your chances of winning.
  • Access historical data on past contracts, including who published them, what they were for, where they were located, and when they expired.
We can help you to plan and write winning tenders

What are renewal contracts?

Public sector renewal opportunities are contracts that have been extended or renewed for a certain period of time after the initial term has expired. They are typically used where there is a need for ongoing services such as IT, maintenance, or social care.

Why are renewal contracts worth my time?

Choosing to go after renewal contracts offers you the following benefits:

  • Reduced requirements: The public sector can often leverage the previous supplier’s investment, meaning a new supplier may only need to focus on maintaining or developing an existing service or product.
  • More time to prepare: Contracts that are likely or planned to be renewed will include durations and dates, which you can use to plan your tendering pipeline.
  • Provide a better service: You can benchmark against the previous supplier’s service, and find ways to provide a superior offer.
