The Irish Public Sector Market

Ireland spends approximately €12 billion every year on goods, services and works. Since 2012, the Office of Government Procurement has been taking action to get the best value from this budget.

Procurement is one of the main focuses of the Irish Government’s Public Service Reform programme and in the latest Communications Strategy (2018 – 2020) from the Office of Government Procurement, the department states that it aims to “promote participation in the public procurement process by SMEs and micro-enterprises”.

Work with the public sector in Ireland

The public service of Ireland refers to the entirety of public administration within the state government apparatus. The Irish Government decides how much budget is spent in hospitals, courts, schools and many other public service buildings across Ireland and relies on the private sector to build, support and maintain these buildings. The Government must supply their occupants with goods to provide services, and therefore issues tenders for these goods, works and services.

We have the largest database of public contracts in Europe and we are constantly updating our portal with Irish public sector contracts.

Your business can access all these contracts today by signing up to our Ireland-Country subscription.
