Tender Watch

2014 kicks off with a bumper edition of the National Tender Bulletin. At a little under 300 pages, the issue features the usual abundance of medical requirements, but largely favours the property market, with the public sector hustling to secure office, parking and residential accommodation for the coming financial year.

Nevertheless, there are several interesting ICT opportunities making the new year kickoff. The Department of Defence is advertising for services for several of its provincial operations, without elaborating on the nature of the services required. The South African Revenue Service is considering proposals from network carriers, but interestingly, is specifying the various services separately. And not to be left out, the State IT Agency comes to the table with a selection of requirements from across government.

If nothing else, this issue reveals the public sector procurement machine is in fact operating. Government appears to have wrapped up 2013 by cleaning up its outstanding tender decisions, a process that Bytes has gained from noticeably.
