eTendersNI - the way to find tender opportunities for central government in Northern Ireland
The eTendersNI portal was introduced in April 2015 – changing the way NI government departments, agencies and arm’s length bodies advertise tender opportunities. Previously central government used the eSourcing NI portal for similar purposes.

A set of printable desk guides is also available to help you get started as an eTendersNI user.
Face-to-face training on eTendersNI
Throughout the year, business network organisations can request an eTendersNI workshop to be delivered for their members - contact Stakeholders.CPD@finance-ni.gov.uk with your requests.
Why was eTendersNI introduced?
As part of the Executive’s commitment to public sector improvement, we’re continually looking for better ways for suppliers to engage, for simpler ways of doing business, and for ways of encouraging the market to offer its best solutions to the public sector.
How do I obtain a Dun & Bradstreet number, in order to register for eTendersNI?
To prevent duplicate registrations, all eTendersNI suppliers will require a Dun & Bradstreet number (D-U-N-S) to complete their eTendersNI registration. There is no charge for obtaining a D-U-N-S number, which is a unique nine digit code to identify a business.
Visit the Dun & Bradstreet website to find your D-U-N-S number; or alternatively if your organisation does not currently have a number, complete a form to obtain one.
