Finally Ireland is moving well and truly out of recession, you can see the activity of building projects popping up all over Ireland, it has been a really, really long slog to get here and it is important that the Goverment does its utmost to ensure that we never go down this road again.
With this in mind a new website has emerged detailing Etenders for Building work that is about to come online, what a tool this is for those who are wanting to get ahead of the game, it has all of Irelands Building Etenders and the App has great usability.
The Building info App is certainly one that builders and building providers alike need to use to get ahead.
Some news recently published in the Indo should raise some eyebrows.
Despite government cuts to health spending, the Health Service Executive (HSE) awarded more than any other body, according to the annual report from TenderScout.
Tony Corrigan, chief executive of TenderScout – which helps SMEs win tenders – revealed that 82pc of the time the results are kept secret, with no public record of the successful companies or the value of the contracts won.
“This type of information is really important to help SMEs gain a better understanding of the process and encourages them to compete for future tenders,” Mr Corrigan said.
“If companies are looking to compete for a contract in the future, like supplying surgical gloves, they don’t know what happened in the past – like who won it, how much it was, and when it is likely to be re-tendered again.
An estimated 7,500 tenders worth €12bn were offered by government departments, agencies and utility companies in 2013 on the eTenders procurement website.
