Search Tenders, Saved Searches and Daily Notifications

The Consolidated Tenders Site provides suppliers to have a single place to search for tenders across all jurisdictions using the Consolidated Tenders Platform. The screen shots below show the search filters available.


Suppliers can use the following search criteria in their searches:




By typing in a word, tender code or key phrase. Consolidated Tenders will search the tender title, tender code, and tender description for those keywords.


Filters search results to tenders that have been marked with UNSPSC classification categories and sub-categories and any that have been marked with a sub classification of that category.

For example, if you select the classification of 20102100 Rock drills, the search results WILL also include tenders that were categorized as 20102101 Pneumatic rock drills. However, if you chose the category 20102101 Pneumatic rock drills, the search will NOT return tenders that were categorized as 20102100 Rock drills.

To use these categorisation codes, simply start typing in some keywords of the category that you are looking for and it will return a series of suggested categories matching those keywords.


Allows you to select the location of tenders in search results from one or more states or territories.
