ICT tenders: Springing into action

[ad_1]

Public sector procurement officers are kicking into the high activity that is synonymous with the spring season. The result is pages of tender opportunities for all areas of the ICT industry to consider vying for.

The software and services sectors are the big winners this week, with a record-breaking 82 and 79 requests on offer. While coming in significantly lower at 49 notices, the hardware sector will still be pleased at the highest level of interest attracted over the last three months. The telecoms sector, on the other hand, falls just short of its peak, with a total of 12 requests.

State power utility Eskom dominates the week with seven requests for bids, a single invitation to express interest and a further three requests for information. The State IT Agency follows close behind, with eight tenders advertised. Special mention goes to Transnet, the Industrial Development Corporation and the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa, which come in at joint third place with four requests each.

While the number of opportunities on offer is encouraging for the ICT sector, the low number of tenders reaching conclusion – whether through cancellation or award – remains alarmingly low. This issue sees two of each announced and it’s worth noting the award announcements are based in deviations from normal procurement processes.
