Supplier Search is a way for public sector buyers to find critical suppliers during the COVID-19 crisis. By searching our database of public sector contracts, buyers can quickly find lists of suppliers that have previously provided services to the public sector.
We're able to provide data on any country that has been publishing data openly, including the UK, Europe and beyond. If your country's data isn't in our database, ask your politicians why they're not publishing their data openly.
To start you off, we've worked with with nurses and other front line workers to put together some sample searches below.
OpenOpps is run by the team behind Spend Network. We're data geeks, so we can't make ventilators or invent a vaccine for COVID-19, but we can share our data. We are hoping that our data might be useful to supply chain teams around the world.
If you like our service, please tell others. If you think it could be better, please tell us.
The data is collected from public sources, we do our best to clean it up and make it presentable, but the quality of our sources varies significantly.
Some of the contracts in the data are framework contracts, where the buyer asks for the supply of multiple lots from multiple suppliers. If a contractor is on a contract, it doesn't mean they can supply all of the goods or services listed in the contract.
It goes without saying, we can't be liable for what you find here. The data is gathered by us and made accessible. That's all we can do. Please do your due diligence on any of the suppliers listed in this database before you trade with them.
