Welcome to CompeteFor

What is CompeteFor?

Following CompeteFor's successful use by the London 2012 Games authorities and their supply chains, the service continues to be used in the supply chain of major capital infrastructure projects, such as Crossrail.

CompeteFor is a free service that enables businesses to compete for contract opportunities linked to major public and private sector buying organisations.

CompeteFor strives to be the national supply chain development service, matching buyers and suppliers. It focuses on opportunities in the supply chains of major capital infrastructure projects. CompeteFor has introduced a number of optional upgrades to further support buyers and suppliers.

Make sure you obtain Cyber Essentials before applying for any central government contracts.
