The following information is an extract from the OGP website
For businesses interested in bidding for public contracts
it is essential that they register their profile on www.procurement.ie
As a buyer or supplier this site will assist you with your public service procurement activities
The OGP Schedule of Frameworks and Contracts sets out the
OGP’s service delivery plan up to Q1 2017 and provides
details of when key contracts and frameworks will be available
for use by public sector bodies. The schedule does not refer
to the timing of procurement activity (e.g. market analysis,
publication of Requests for Tender etc.) that is undertaken
prior to any contract award or framework establishment.
The Schedule has been published to inform public sector bodies and suppliers of the prioritisation of categories of expenditure up to Q1 2017. All OGP procurement activity will be conducted through the eTenders platform, www.etenders.gov.ie, where all relevant information will be available.
The Schedule is updated on a quarterly basis so that a rolling nine month forward view is always visible.
Further information about the Schedule of Frameworks and Contracts is available on the homepage of the Office of Government Procurement website, under “News and Updates”, for logged-in public sector users. Public sector users are asked to log-in here and go to the “News and Updates” section to view this information.
