How often is Marketplace updated? And will I be notified when an new opportunity has been added?

We search for new opportunities on a daily basis and post them as soon as they become available. You’ll be able to create multiple searches using differing criteria and save them. Toggling ‘notifications’ will allow you to be notified when we find new opportunities that meet those criteria so you never miss a new opportunity.

‘Favouriting’ an opportunity places it into your ‘My Favourites’ which is always located on the top right-hand side of Marketplace. You can favourite an opportunity by clicking the star on the right-hand side of the results page, or by clicking ‘Add to favourites’ from the detail page.

Where does your data come from?

We take data feeds directly from the source to make sure they are as accurate and up to date as possible. For ‘Planning’ that includes over 400 UK planning authorities. For ‘Public’ we gather from OJEU/TED, Contract Finder and Find a Tender.
