Government Contracts and Tenders Data


Government Contracts and Tenders Data is connected with the government policy concerning public procurement. This policy states that any and all government contracts must have a basis in value for money and be transparant.which they define as “the best mix of effectiveness and quality for the least outlay for the usage period for the services or goods purchased.” Government and associated agencies must obtain these goods or services through open tenders unless they have well-founded reasons to proceed otherwise.

Additionally, both open tenders and government contracts have a legal framework in place which encourages open and free competition and value for money. These things must conform to national and internationally agreed-on regulations and Data Standards. The government aligns all procurement policies within this set legal framework and aligned with the wider policy objectives Open Standard Principles.

Government contracts made available through open tenders make up a very large percentage of the UK’s total spend in the economy, this makes it an important source of data and potential business.
