Find a Tender Service (FTS)

Please click on the tabs below for further information.

The Find A Tender Service (FTS) is the UK e-notification service that replaced the requirement to publish procurement notices in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) at the end of the transition period at 23:00 on 31 December 2020. This applies to goods, services and works over certain financial values that must be procured in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.

What is FTS?

Contracting Authorities such as Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) have legal obligations under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 to publish certain notices in relation to public procurements.  Find a Tender Service (FTS) is the new UK e-notification service. For procurements which are launched after 23:00 on 31 December 2020, GCC will be required to publish notices relating to those procurements on FTS instead of the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

A procurement notice is required to be published by GCC when the value of a public sector contract is equal to or exceeds one of the following current thresholds net of VAT:

Works Contracts                                                               £4,733,252

Supply and Service Contracts (sub-central authorities)      £189,330

Light Touch Regime for health/social services                     £663,540
