EU Tenders Electronic Daily (TED)





From href="">website:

TED (Tenders Electronic Daily) is the online version of the 'Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union', dedicated to European public procurement.

TED provides free access to business opportunities. It is updated five times a week with approximately 1500 public procurement notices from the European Union, the European Economic Area and beyond.

You can browse, search and sort procurement notices by country, region, business sector and more.

Information about every procurement document is published in the 23 official EU languages. All notices from the European Union's institutions are published in full in these languages.
