ICT tenders: Carry on buying

Read time 11min 50sec

It has now been five weeks since the last National Tender Bulletin was published due to technical “challenges” the Government Printing Works is still trying to resolve on its eGazette publishing system.

This has had a significant impact on National and Provincial government which are required to publish tenders with an expected value of over R500 000 in the National Tender Bulletin to ensure fair market access to high value tenders.

Nevertheless, these restrictions do not extend to the notices of awarded tenders. The public sector is choosing to publish its contract announcements on National Treasury's eTender portal. March is commonly the month when government looks to push through outstanding tender decisions as it prepares to close off its financial year.

Meanwhile, local government, authorities and state owned entities have taken advantage of lower restrictions on the advertisements of their tenders while also accessing the benefits of eTender portal.

As a result, the services and software sectors have many tenders to consider this week. Opportunities also exist for the hardware and telecommunications providers albeit at a far lower number.
