Tender Watch

This week's National Tender Bulletin sees government's ICT activities showing a slowdown off several months of heightened activity.

The South African Weather Service bucks the trend with a total of seven adverts for ICT-related requirements. The State IT Agency also comes to the party, with five new advertisements and closing date extensions to two existing tenders. Unfortunately, the organisation also cancels three tenders.
