In our web story this week Public sector tenders 'confuse' suppliers, we revealed that the methods some government buyers are using to advertise contracts is causing "confusion" among suppliers.

The use of national websites, including supply2.gov and CompeteFor, as well as regional and service-specific sites means vendors are unsure where best to find contract notices.

When you consider that the purpose of these websites is to make tenders more accessible, I think it is slightly ironic that there is a level of uncertainty among suppliers.

Do you think there are too many websites displaying business opportunities?

What strategy do you use to advertise contracts online?
