The TenderHood Town Council Planning
Like any neighbourhood, good planning and design makes for happy inhabitants. As we continue to build the TenderHood Community, we invite you to join us in developing our road map.
Our goal is to help SMEs win their fair share of government contracts. With that in mind, join our Forum in The Pub and let us know the kinds of tools and information you need to develop and win business in the Public Procurement Sector.
The TenderHood Town Plan (So Far…)
We’ve built the foundation, we want your help to drive our development… The colour buildings below are operational. Buildings in grey are “under construction”. We want your feedback to know if we should keep building.

What's In The Plans?
Some of our building projects are completed but still open to “leaseholder improvements” (i.e., you like the space, but want a few modifications). Others are under construction and need more approvals before they’re open to the public.
Help our work crews be more efficient. Let us know if the proposed buildings serve the best interests of neighborhood. If not, is there something better that you want us to build?
The Pub - Supplier Social Network
Our Supplier-centric Social Network is fully loaded (with functionality like LinkedIn and Facebook), but dedicated to discussions related to U.K. public procurement. Use this space to make connections, identify opportunities, ask questions and address obstacles.
Town Hall - Forums and Public Procurement Events
If you want to have a Group Discussion about doing business with government authorities, create a social network Forum here. In this building you’ll find Forums related to issues, obstacles, and government procurement-related events. It’s the perfect place to voice your observations and put forward solutions to overcome the obstacles.

The Garage - Tender Profiles and User Management
Update and manage your Business Profiles and Team Members here. Going after a different business sector? Adding resources or changing strategy? Use the tools in the Garage to modify how AndyBot matches tender searches to your business objectives.
The Playing Field - Tender Matching and Management
This is where you suit up and get ready to play! The Playing Field is your access to tender search and matching opportunities. We use AndyBot (our machine learning technology) to understand the kind of business you’re looking for and alert you to tenders that match your Business Profile. The more you interact with AndyBot, the more he is able to refine your search results and deliver the tenders you’re more likely to win.
And of course - this little fella!!
