Why you need to know about TED

by Helena Deane on 07/07/11

Following on from the blog on the international public procurement and tendering, I wanted to introduce everybody to TED. For those who are yet unfamiliar with TED, TED stands for Tenders Electronic Daily, which is the online version of the 'Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union', dedicated to European public procurement.
TED provides free access to business opportunities.
  • It is updated five times a week with approximately 1500 public procurement notices from the European Union, the European Economic Area and beyond.
  • You can browse, search and sort procurement notices by country, region, business sector and more.
  • Information about every procurement document is published in the 23 official EU languages. All notices from the European Union's institutions are published in full in these languages.

TED gives you:

  • direct access to public calls for tender from across the EU and Europe as a whole;
  • on average 1 500 new notices every day, which means hundreds of potential business opportunities for you;
  • official, reliable and legally binding contract information from all sectors of industry and business, as well as the EU institutions.

How to access TED

Note: Low-value contracts are not usually advertised in TED. Those with a value between EUR 25 000 and 60 000 may be found on the web pages of Commission departments intending to organise a procurement procedure. A directory of these pages can be found at: http://ec.europa.eu/public_contracts/index_en.htm
