Supply2.gov.uk is a government-backed portal that gives building services suppliers easy access to lower-value public sector contract opportunities, typically those worth under £100,000. Supply2.gov.uk is particularly useful for small firms, start ups & social enterprises looking for information on central and local government opportunities.
Because construction procurement is so complex, Government and Supply2.gov.uk advise public sector buyers to use Constructionline pre-qualified suppliers for construction contracts, to keep matters straightforward and pitfall-free. The Official Journal of the European Community (OJEU) threshold for construction is below £3.8 million, which means using accredited suppliers is recommended even for low value contracts. With this in mind, the Constructionline and Supply2.gov.uk IT infrastructures have been harmonized so users can move easily between the two services.
