ICT Tenders: Election ripple

Read time 5min 50sec

It's another bare-bones issue of the National Tender Bulletin reflecting government procurement taking a back seat to political activity in surrounding national and provincial election. With a submission deadline of one week prior to publication, the bulletin is likely to take several weeks to recover its pre-vote weight and provide insight into the mood in government's supply chain offices.

The electoral process does, however, contribute to this week's edition - the Electoral Commission itself has the last word with a cancellation on its request for voter registration devices and then two tender awards for computer servers and photocopier machines respectively.

Government's latest tenders strongly favour the software sector this week, followed closely by interest in services. The KwaZulu-Natal Tourism Authority has revealed that finding a SAP or Microsoft service provider may not be as easy as expected. Instead the authority has had to issue a 'non-award' as all the companies that submitted bids for its tender failed to meet the pre-qualification criteria.
