The National Tender Bulletin regains some of its bulk this week, following last week's slump. Much of the new opportunities, however, are for infrastructure projects and office accommodation.

 The State Information Technology Agency (SITA) comes to the ICT sector's rescue with three new tenders across hardware, software and services. It also provides this week's notable entries with its notifications of three awards. Following years of keeping contract values under wraps, this weekthe agency choose to disclose the numbers involved. This will please the industry, which has for some time complained about the lack of transparency.

 Aside from the tenders being facilitated by SITA, this week's issue sees several national government departments coming direct to the market with their requirements. This includes the departments of Basic Education, Defence and Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs. Requests for software and services dominate, with hardware also seeing an increase in demand.
