Launch of new Public Procurement Guidelines – July 2017

The publication of the guidelines follow the transposition of the new EU Directives on public procurement into Irish law and usher in important changes on how public procurement will be conducted across Europe in future years. They are intended to serve as a toolkit for practitioners and a general reference document for suppliers. They replace previously issued guidelines in respect of goods and services. Click HERE for details.


Revision of Public Procurement Directives’ thresholds with effect from 1 January 2018

The EU Commission has revised the Public Procurement Directive’s thresholds resulting in an increase in the thresholds for advertising in the Official Journal of the EU.
The thresholds will apply from 1 January 2018. Click

Tender Advisory Service

The Tender Advisory Service (TAS) is being piloted to assist suppliers who have issues or concerns with a procurement process carried out by the Office of Government Procurement (OGP) or other public sector contracting body (excluding the commercial semi-state bodies). The pilot will cover all procurement processes and will be subject to review after the first twelve months. TAS will operate through the OGP’s Customer Service Section.

Reminder to Suppliers

A new software update of the eTenders platform, which was released on the 14th July 2014, seeks additional information from all registered suppliers

   * Please update your Company Profile with details such as; Description of Business, Number of Employees, Turnover etc.

   * Where companies are duplicated on the system, choose one account and update with your company VAT number. All users for that same company should be attached to a single company registration.

The Office of Government Procurement requested additional information by the August 31st, 2014. 

OGP has commenced deactivating supplier accounts where no attempt was made to update their registration details.
