Procurement system and tender publishing

What procurement system do you use? And is this also where you publish tenders?

We use ProContract to the Supplying the South West Procurement Portal and this is also where tenders are published.

Do you publish tenders anywhere else, if so where? For example, your website, Contracts Finder etc

Tenders are published to the requirements of the 2015 Public Contracts Regulations within Contracts Finder and TED and the above procurement portal
