Welcome to the eTenders procurement website

To All Registered Suppliers

A new software update of the E-Tender platform, which was released on the 14th July, now seeks additional information from existing registered suppliers.

We would therefore request that you log into the E-Tenders platform and update your company details as soon as possible. Warnings will prompt users to update fields which are blank. The Office of Government Procurement is committed to cleaning up the user information by the August 31st, 2014.

Please note, registered suppliers will not be prevented from uploading tenders at this stage where their details are inaccurate. However, OGP may consider deactivating supplier accounts in the future where no attempt is made to update their registration details.

We look forward to promoting better inclusion in all our tender competitions and we ask you to urgently review your company details and update with accurate information where necessary.


 Yours Sincerely,


Kathryn Smith,

Head of Operations,

Office of Government Procurement.

Important Notice to All Public Sector Buyers and Suppliers

The Office of Government Procurement wishes to clarify that we will not have an official presence at the Procurex Live event in September, which is being organised by a private firm (BiP Solutions).

Any promotional material for the event which indicates otherwise is inaccurate.

The Office of Government Procurement continues to support supplier engagement and education through the InterTradeIreland/Office of Government Procurement ‘Meet the Buyer‘ events, which having been running since 2011.

At the ITI/OGP ‘Meet the Buyer‘ events, which are offered free to suppliers, major public sector buyers from across the island of Ireland meet directly with small business owners to raise awareness of the kinds of goods and service they tender for, forthcoming opportunities and how they tender. As well as engaging directly with key buyers, specialists are on hand to advise SMEs on refining their pitch, consortia building, funding opportunities and business supports available.

InterTradeIreland and the Office of Government Procurement are planning two Meet the Buyer events for 2014 – in Belfast (October) and Dublin (November). Full details will be available on InterTradeIreland’s website, www.intertradeireland.com, closer to the time.
