DIGITAL MARKET PLACE – Creative Tenders Support


DIGITAL MARKET PLACE – Creative Tenders Support

So, the government launched Digital Market Place to support digital companies with sourcing government contracts and government buyers to source digital suppliers.  Seems simple, right? Not exactly.

In theory, we totally love Digital Market Place, I mean who wouldn’t as a tender writer for digital businesses.  Our main concern, however, is that the tenders are locked down to registered suppliers and it’s been an age since they’ve opened it up for new registrations.  Great for our customers who are already registered, not so great for those who aren’t.

It’s simple to register your interest to get a notification when they open the gates for new supplier registrations, all you have to do is click this link and add your email address – https://www.digitalmarketplace.service.gov.uk/suppliers/supply.

The types of tenders you will find on Digital Market Place range from day-rate development work to full-scale multi-million-pound software and web projects. In our opinion, budgets tend to be larger and contracts posted are for experienced digital agencies rather than start-ups/small agencies, but don’t let that put you off applying to be a registered supplier. Once you’re on, you’re on.  You do however have to keep details up to date to ensure your registration remains live.

The words from the horse’s mouth over at https://www.digitalmarketplace.service.gov.uk/suppliers/supply states that:

You will be able to apply to sell:

  • digital outcomes, for example, a team to build a service
  • digital specialists, for example, an individual developer or user researcher
  • user research studios
  • user research participants


You will be able to apply to sell:

  • cloud hosting
  • software
  • technical support

We will issue via our social channels and customer newsletters, information regarding Digital Market Place’s registration announcement, so keep an eye out in your inbox.
