Unfortunately the ‘type of company’ data requested in the PQ (ref: 5420/21) is not part of the supplier registration details captured on the national electronic tendering platform (eTenders).

Suppliers are asked to indicate whether they are one of the following:

- Private Company

- Public Limited Company

- Sole Trader

- Partnership

- Charity

Details of the type of company within those categories is generally provided within the content of submissions by bidders in response to individual Requests for Tenders but the data is not accessible to systematically report on. While the tendering process is facilitated through the national electronic tendering platform (eTenders), the complete data on public contracts is held by the contracting authority concerned.

Questions Nos. 221 and 222 answered with Question No. 216.
