Searching for your first tender

We look a bit deeper into the search features within Marketplace so you can start sourcing the projects and tenders in your area that match your specific criteria

'My filters' and advanced search

See how you can save your search criteria to 'My filters' so that you do not need to redo the same search time-and-time again, and discover the advanced search filters available.

How does Marketplace work?

Projects and tenders from a comprehensive list of public portals are aggregated and made available to you through Marketplace, along with a vast range of projects and tenders posted by our Constructionline Buyers*. We work with the biggest buyers in the sector, who value the ease of identifying verified suppliers like you via our platform. This means you can expect to see more and more opportunities direct from those companies.

The Marketplace advanced interface allows you to search by keywords and set filters easily, to help you find the opportunities that are right for your business.

Frequently asked questions

What is Marketplace?

Marketplace brings together the UK’s largest community of construction industry suppliers and buyers to help them win more business. For suppliers, it offers them the chance to uncover both publicly available opportunities as well as unique opportunities from Constructionline buyers. And for buyers, it lets them target suppliers, using criteria not available on any other platform, to approach and gauge interest to build supply chains that meet specific needs of their customers, projects and organisation.

As a supplier, how would this benefit me and my business?

We know that as a supplier in the construction industry you’re always looking for new business opportunities and, as the UK’s largest community of construction buyers and suppliers, we can help. We’re proud to be introducing Constructionline’s brand new service, Marketplace which has been designed specifically to help you promote your business and win more deals.

How does Marketplace work?

You’ll be able to easily search and set up alerts for: 

  • New planning applications from all 438 UK planning authorities 
  • Find-a-tender public procurement notices 
  • Contracts Finder high-value contracts (usually above £118k) 
  • OJEU/TED with over 170 thousand procurement notices each year 

And coming in Q1 2022, receive notifications of unique opportunities from Constructionline buyers looking for your skillset to help them win new business and deliver current projects. 

What is the cost to gain access to Marketplace?

Marketplace is included with your standard Constructionline membership, saving you money over external services that aggregate public opportunities. However, if you decide Marketplace is something you don’t require our customer service team can apply a discount to your account based on your turnover.

Will it last for the duration of my membership?

Yes, Marketplace will be part of your membership and will be part of your normal invoice cycle.

Can any department in my organisation use Marketplace?

Anyone associated with winning work or finding work opportunities will find the Marketplace application useful

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. This functionality won’t be available at the start of the Early Adopter program, but we are looking to add this in the next few weeks.

How do I go back and quickly find opportunities I found earlier?

‘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 all 438 UK planning authorities. For ‘Public’ we gather from OJEU/TED, Contract Finder and Find a Tender.

What are the advanced search filters?

You can keep your searches as broad as you like by using simple keywords and using AND and OR to expand or reduce the results. If you want to tune your searches to make them more relevant to your business you can filter on

  • CPV code/ codes
  • Exclude keywords to remove search results that contain them
  • Include a published date or a deadline date
  • Include a location with or without a radius added
  • Include/exclude based on the minimum and/or maximum value
Can I see the status of an opportunity?

Yes, we include the status of the opportunity where it is presented to us by the original source. These include ‘Notice’, ‘Award’

How many published opportunities are there

Across the planning authorities, there are approximately 500,000 notices per year.  Publicly listed contracts add around 170,000 per year.  

How can I give a colleague access to Marketplace?

Please get in touch with your account administrator to add additional profiles to your account

Can I share opportunities with people in my business?

If the user has an account on the platform and has access to the Marketplace app, you can copy and paste the URL and pass it to your colleague. We are looking at future development to enable on-platform sharing of opportunities

Can I contact the person responsible for the opportunity directly?

Yes, you can see their details in the search result detail page and click through to the 3rd party portal providing the data.

Can I see opportunities from Buyers in my network?

We’re adding the ability for any buyer to target any supplier on the Constructionline platform with details of projects those suppliers may be interested in.  This functionality will be delivered in Q2 2022
