CirrusTenders is bundled as part of any Cirrus led procurement, or available as a subscription service for buyers undertaking their own tenders, but wishing to optimise their tendering efficiency and minimise the environmental impact of the tender process.
It allows buyers to manage the tender process electronically, eradicating paperwork, removing the need to issue documents to bidders and standardising and controlling the format of responses to make evaluations easier, focussing on content rather than marketing gloss.

Feedback from buyers using the system includes:
“There was no doubt a saving in the level of resource required in collating the documents and issuing to contractors.”
“CirrusTenders has definitely provided us many benefits and so far everyone is very pleased with the way things have gone”.
“Thanks for your help. The electronic submissions for PQQs (and the data about those who didn’t see it through) has been really handy and I’ll be sure to extol its virtues".
“The support was very comprehensive from evaluation of the tender documents, the form of procurement, and compliance with our internal business assurance requirements. Once we were happy with the quality of the tender documents, rather than printing off and posting large packages to contractors, we simply sent an email with attachments to Cirrus who did the rest!”
Feedback from bidders includes:
“We found the site user friendly and the process clear and simple”.
“The last day of filling in a tender is usually a mad panic, this was different everything was on the website and all we had to do was answer the questions, click submit and it was done”.
