InterTradeIreland is undertaking a review of the public procurement market on the island of Ireland and the current uptake of opportunities it presents, particularly to SMEs and to those operating on a cross-border basis. The all-island public procurement market is worth approximately £10.4bn/€12.1bn and represents an untapped market for many SMEs to increase their sales, develop business opportunities and deliver innovative solutions to the market.
Your feedback is important in order to help promote, encourage and improve SME participation in public procurement on the island, we would therefore be very grateful if you could take the time to share your insights and views on your experience of the public procurement market on the island of Ireland.
It is anticipated the results of the research will be published on our website in quarter 4 of 2018.
