Sell2Wales

Sell2wales is an advertising portal for contract opportunities that is also used widely by a wide range of Public sector organisations.

A key component of its commitment to the ‘Wales Procurement Policy Statement’ is that Welsh Government (WG) advertises all of its tendering opportunities above £25,000 through Sell2Wales (external link)

Suppliers register on the website indicating the specific goods or services they can offer and/or the kinds of work they are interested in, and automatically receive by e-mail details of relevant tendering opportunities. Full guidance on registration is available on the website. Registration is free of charge.

If you have not already done so you should immediately register your details at Sell2Wales (external link) to hear about tendering opportunities. The procurement opportunities under this programme will be advertised on Sell2Wales in due course.
