Changes to tender advertising values

23 December 2021

Recent changes to public procurement thresholds regulations mean that for procurements which will start from 1 January 2022 there will be revised threshold values above which contracts must be published on the government's Find a Tender service (FTS).


Although contract values are now estimated inclusive of VAT, the values used for FTS and Contracts Finder adverts and award notices will continue to be published exclusive of VAT.
