ICT tenders: eTender portal problems?

Read time 16min 20sec

Public sector procurement advertising activity on National Treasury's eTender portal has come to a sudden, inexplicable halt.

Although the site remains live, no new advertisements have been uploaded since last week Friday. This is unusual as, while minimal, new tenders are uploaded over the weekend before the rush hits on Monday.

There are no immediately apparent reasons for this halt; including a directive from National Treasury or an outcome to the clarity sought from the Constitutional Court on the status of the 2017 Preferential Procurement Regulations.

At the time of writing, National Treasury had not responded to a request for comment on the situation.

This has resulted in a rather lacklustre week for government tenders. Software interest leads this week with 43 opportunities down from 49. Demand for services has also declined by six to 36 available tenders. The hardware and telecommunications sector remain unchanged at 25 and 10 advertisements respectively.
