Why are some opportunities 'open to selected' or 'open to one'?
When an opportunity is ‘open to selected’ or ‘open to one’, the buyer has invited a small number of sellers to apply. When a buyer publishes one of these opportunities we notify invited sellers by email.
Buyers are always encouraged to make their opportunities ‘open to all’ to get the best results.
In some circumstances, publishing ‘open to selected’ or ‘open to one’ is preferable to the buyer. We publish these briefs on the Digital Marketplace as it’s important to be open about what services Government buyers need.
How do I get selected for an open to selected opportunity?
Individual buyers will choose sellers based on their own processes and circumstances.
Some buyers may select sellers through the seller catalogue in the Digital Marketplace. So you should always ensure your seller profile is up to date and provides a good summary of your business and its capabilities.
Can I apply for a brief that’s open to selected?
Only invited sellers are eligible to apply for ‘open to selected’ opportunities.
