ICT tenders – Results season

Read time 4min 50sec

Last week's National Tender Bulletin was a low key affair with little to excite ICT industry.

The edition doesn't not offer much in the way of new opportunities, which may be a result of National Treasury's message last month to government departments to cut their budgets. That which is on offer strongly favours the software sector while the hardware sector is left out in the cold.

While far more tenders have been awarded than cancelled, it's worth noting that as many as seven tenders have been binned.
