When a government agency wants to have a contract fulfilled, it announces a call for tenders. In the Netherlands, you will find these announcements on TenderNed. Here you can submit your offer for a specific project. Please be aware of the various steps you have to take before you can submit an offer. For more information, you can also read the Tenderned six steps to bidding public procurement contracts or contact TenderNed (in Dutch).
Submitting tenders online
In TenderNed you manage your own company file. This file includes all your data and documents, which you can reuse in future tenders. Frequently required documents of proof are linked automatically. Contracting authorities may decide if companies must register online for the tender.
Finding current tenders
You can find all tenders on TenderNed (in Dutch). TenderNed can alert you of any tender through their RSS feed for announcements. You can also choose to receive email alerts for any relevant tenders. For this, you must register as a user at TenderNed.nl (in Dutch). Foreign companies can also register at TenderNed.
