ICT Tenders – Government returns to spending

Read time 8min 50sec

Rugby aside, it's been a dismal two weeks for South Africa: finance minister Tito Mboweni's medium-term budget was sombre, at best; Moody downgraded its outlook on government's credit rating from “stable” to “negative”; and cash-strapped Eskom unexpectedly instituted stage 2 load shedding late Thursday night.

This type of news, typically results in a pall of gloom settling on government procurement departments, not to mention those in the private sector with aspirations of securing a lucrative public sector contract.

Despite the state of public finance having hit its lowest point of 2019, the latest National Tender Bulletin manages to deliver one of this year's busiest collections of ICT tenders. What's more, the issue sees a number of national departments making an appearance.

Demand for services dominates the issue, with requests in the double digits. Software interest are not far behind, while the hardware sector will be pleased to see at least double the number of opportunities than what they have come to expect.
