The website of the Tender Board, the body responsible for awarding government contracts, provides a comprehensive database that provides extensive data on government tenders. The data includes information about the project, the value of the tender documents, the names of all companies that bought the documents, the names of all companies that submitted proposals with the cost of each proposal. There is also information regarding the date the tender was floated, the date envelopes were opened, and the date the tender was awarded. There appears to be a bug with the page for displaying the award document, but it is easy to identify the awarded company as the information page shows the award amount (which could be cross referenced with the proposal cost).
