e-Tender Publication Portal is up and running

Government’s e-Tender portal should be up and running and will incorporate tenders from municipalities as from the 1st of July 2015.

The e-Tender portal was launched on the 1st of April 2015 under the command of the Office of the Chief Procurement Officer.

The State Information Technology Agency (SITA) is responsible for technical support, maintenance and hosting of the portal.

In a statement announcing the project, National Treasury said the e-Tender project is linked to a broader objective of modernising the state’s Supply Chain Management which includes the establishment of a central supplier database.

The e-Tender portal was described as “a single platform for the publication of tenders to eliminate duplication and fragmentation of notices for government tenders.

“The central supplier database (CSD) will be a consolidated list of all supplier information for national, provincial and local government.”

The Treasury statement added that the e-Tender Publication portal is aimed at simplifying, standardising and automating the procurement process. “National and provincial departments will publish their tenders in accordance with the demand plans for acquisition of goods, services and infrastructure. The tenders for the 2015/16 financial should start going through towards the end of April 2015 for procurement plans that have been approved.

“Municipalities will start to publish their tenders on the portal on 1 July 2015 to coincide with the start of the financial year for municipalities.”

The statement added that “the eTender portal is a first step towards implementing government’s eProcurement system as part of the Integrated Financial Management System and will directly contribute to reducing duplication, fragmentation and inefficiency in government tender publications.

“The benefits of the portal include cost reduction and effort associated with traditional tender publications and an improvement in transparency and accountability with regards to the award of government tenders.”

The e-Tender portal can be accessed at www.etenders.gov.za.
