ICT tenders: SOEs on the hunt

Read time 14min 40sec

National Treasury's temporary online tender platform remains busy as the public sector races to the Sharepoint portal to comply with financial management legislation. Although rudimentary – and cumbersome for the marketplace to navigate – the eTender portal continues to produce a flood of opportunities for the ICT sector to consider.

This week is dominated by state-owned entities with 26 advertisements and smaller local municipalities with 18 requests. The remainder of the public sector offers up 20 tenders, six of which originate from national departments.

Requests for services lead with 40 opportunities, followed closely by the software sector with 38 opportunities. Hardware also attracts interest with 23 tenders on offer. The telecommunications sector, while still in single digits, attracts above average interest too.
