Tenders.Net has hundreds of thousands of registrants looking specifically for tenders. Your opportunity on Tenders.Net will be exposed to many more potential bidders than what you would get through any other media.
Many of our members subscribe to receive notification of relevant opportunities, so not only will your opportunity be available to find online it will also be sent directly to any suppliers that would be interested in responding - the same day that you release the opportunity.
The opportunities you release through Tenders.Net as publicly available are provided free of charge to you and to any of your prospective suppliers, from the smallest to the largest.
Facilities exist for you to manage lists of your own suppliers, grouping them into different panels of your own design. You can then invite individual suppliers, or whole supplier panels to the tenders you advertise, whether public or selective.
As an Advertiser on Tenders.Net,
We make it really easy for you to do your job well.
Our system automatically generates full audit tracking logs that record all activity and changes to your tender. This includes downloads, submissions, changes and amendments. These Activity Reports can be viewed and downloaded at any time during the course of your open tender.
We also have an optional Tendering History that provides a great overview of the various opportunities you release through Tenders.Net.
Each of your opportunities are unique and specific to specific requirements, so why should your advertisements be lumped together in a generic, basic format, maybe with 'features' that you will never use?
With Tenders.Net each of your opportunities can be customised on a per-tender basis, choosing only those of our many features that are relevant to each case.
Even the security and access control is done on a per-tender basis, preventing members from modifying opportunities not under their purview. Far from restrictive, this finer control makes it easier for you to keep information security while still having a backup in case someone goes on leave or is unavailable due to sickness.
If you don't normally advertise tenders, but have an opportunity you would like to have the greatest exposure on, you can place it directly onto Tenders.Net or you can have our staff put up your advertisment and manage it for you.
As our regular advertisers know, placing your opportunity on Tenders.Net will give it greater exposure to more suppliers actually interested in submitting bids.
As a frequent Advertiser on Tenders.Net you can get a free customisable mini-site set up just for your tenders, which can even be embedded directly into your own website for seamless interaction. This Direct Tendering Portal (or DTP) makes the perfect spot to manage your own opportunities or to direct your suppliers to for accessing your tenders without cost.
And its free. All of it. All the time.
Our system has been designed to meet the requirements for government, from local councils all the way to federal, as well as those from private companies and organisations.
You'll find many councils and companies are already using Tenders.Net to advertise and manage their opportunities, both public and invitation only.
We provide paid upgrades that our free suppliers can optionally subscribe to giving them a guaranteed comprehensive tender notification service. These paid subscriptions allow us to provide the service to you free of charge for publicly available tenders.
Because we provide a comprehensive coverage of all tenders throughout Australia and New Zealand, advertising your opportunities directly onto Tenders.Net saves us the time we would have spent in finding and adding your opportunity ourselves. Instead of 'double-dipping' and charging both sides we say 'thank you' and provide this service to you at no cost.

Our website has been designed to make requiring a manual unnecessary. Each page makes it clear where to go and what you need to do next and it is impossible to get lost as in other sites with convoluted menu structures.
Advertising tenders is made easy by following a simple wizard that guides you step by step through the short process. Releasing amendments to your tenders is just as easy and will automatically notify interested suppliers for you.
The Manage Your Tenders section is the central spot to easily manage all your opportunities, whatever stage in the process they are whether incomplete, delayed, proposed, current, closed or awarded. Similarly the Maintain Your Suppliers area is where you can manage the lists of your suppliers and the Supplier Panels you may have grouped them in to.
As an advertiser we will create for you your own Direct Tendering Portal, your DTP, that will be the place for you and your suppliers to find your opportunities.
Your DTP will be uniquely customised to match your website and your requirements, making it clear that these are your opportunities. The DTP is also available to be embedded directly in your own website for a more seemless experience.
For your suppliers this provides an easy place to find just your tenders and is the preferred place to link to from other advertisements you put out for your opportunities. They can bookmark your page and check it frequently or even subscribe to your DTP to be automatically notified of any opportunities you release.
We understand that you are not the same as everyone else and neither is your opportunity. Here at Tenders.Net we provide many features for you to use that provide more functionality and make each advertisement more suited to your specific needs.
You can choose to have your opportunity released publicly, restricted to Tenders.Net subscribers or available only to your directly invited suppliers. This opportunity can be released immediately or delayed until a specific date and time.
You can attach documentation to your advertisement for suppliers to download or have them fill out a request first. If your documentation is already on the web, just add in your links instead. You may place a charge on accessing your documentation if required.
Need to upload new files as addenda or to change the advertisement details, such as extend the closing date? Our automated system provides quick and simple ways of notifying your suppliers of any changes you make to your advertisements. Suppliers can opt-out of receiving these updates if they are no longer interested.
By receiving submissions electronically you remove the hassle of dealing with a physical tender box, but keep the benefits. All submissions to the box are securely encrypted until the tender closes and they are automatically released to you, the advertiser. There are several different types that you can choose from.
The best way to prevent others asking the same question over and over again is to release the question and its answer on a Tender Forum for your opportunity. Only you can post information onto this forum but any supplier can ask a question for you to answer. This way suppliers get the answers to all their questions in one easy place and you are no longer overloaded in dealing with them.
For our regular advertisers we provide a full audit tracking system for tender advertisements via our Tender Activity Reports. Every action, interaction and modification to each of your opportunities is recorded is these activity reports that can be viewed online or downloaded for your records.
You can place your requests for tenders and quotations acceptiong bids only from your own select list of suppliers. No other suppliers can view or respond to this opportunity. This gives you the power of the full tendering process when asking for private quotations or after an open request for Expressions of Interest.
The list of your available suppliers can be maintained online for you to invite suppliers from individually or as part of a pre-made supplier panel. You can also invite new suppliers to your already released opportunity.
As they do not get the same exposure as your publicly available ones, these 'Selective' opportunities may incur a cost to advertise, but are still completely free for your suppliers to access and respond to.
Please contact the friendly staff on our Help Desk if you would like more information.
