ICT Tenders – Return for New Dawn

Read time 5min 00sec

It's a slow week for the National Tender Bulletin with a little something for all sectors of the ICT industry to consider.

New opportunities narrowly favour the services sector with requests for consulting continuing to appear. The software and hardware sectors receive an equal amount of interest while the telecommunications industry also receives a shout out.

News of interest this week goes to a R40 million award from the Council for Geoscience to New Dawn Technologies for an enterprise resource planning system. The company and its parent New Dawn Holdings were last in the headlines more than a decade ago with news of financial difficulties, retrenchments and employee walkouts.
