Unfortunately the majority of suppliers registered in eTenders have not provided accurate company profile information including company registered address so we cannot report accurately on a break down by county of awards won by domestic companies above OJEU thresholds.  We are currently enhancing eTenders to encourage suppliers to enter accurate and complete company details and expect to contact suppliers to update their information in eTenders by the end of June. We are hopeful that suppliers will comply with the request to update their company details and by year end we would anticipate that we will be able to provide a detailed breakdown by county on contracts awarded that are logged in eTenders.
