ICT Tenders: SITA ramps up activity

Read time 15min 40sec

2020 has been a disruptive year for both the public and private sector as the COVID-19 pandemic impacted staffing, operations, demand and output ability. Despite the difficult operating conditions and uncertainty surrounding budget allocations, the State IT Agency (SITA) has recorded its most active year in the National Tender Bulletin.

This week's edition sees government's technology shop going to even greater heights with its advertisements of 13 new opportunities, one cancellation and four awards. Interestingly, the agency has also been more forthcoming with the values of its tender awards.

Demand for software dominates this issue, delivering record levels of attention from the government space. While interest in services trails behind, the sector still has much to consider including requests for more sophisticated offerings. Hardware advertisements, meanwhile, attract fair interest falling just short of double digits.
