Dear Mr Savage,

A while ago you sent us the request below. In response, we would offer the
following information.

Most public sector bodies use electronic procurement systems to advertise
contract opportunities and manage their tender processes - this is
government policy. One way of ensuring you are aware of opportunities is
to register with such systems - the attached document explains how this
can be done with Bristol City Council's system.

All contracts over a certain financial limit set by the EU must be
advertised in the European Journal. The web address for this is

I hope this information is useful.
