ICT tenders: National Treasury considers education tech

Read time 13min 10sec

The National Tender Bulletin appears to be recovering from the procurement hiccup following President Cyril Ramaphosa's announcement of the formation of a dedicated unit to investigate COVID-19 procurement corruption.

This week's edition offers a slew of opportunities for the ICT industry. The software sector easily leads in new advertisements in the double digits, followed by hardware (also in double digits) and then services requests.

This week's notice of interest comes from a request for information from National Treasury – the Chief Procurement Officer is considering transversal contracts for the supply and delivery of ICT-based learning and teaching support material for the Department of Basic Education. The COVID-19 pandemic saw schools trying to provide remote learning for scholars following months of school closures.
