SARS awards Internet content tender
Amid a multibillion-rand spate of IT upgrades, the SA Revenue Service (SARS) has awarded Flux Interactive the tender for an Internet content management solution.
SARS said in its request for proposal: "The SARS Internet site is an essential communication channel for South African taxpayers, as well as a broad spectrum of other stakeholders and interested parties. It is essential for SARS to ensure the effective and efficient management and administration of the Web site and the need has been identified to implement a Web content management solution."
Black-owned Flux Interactive received news yesterday that it had won the tender for the content management solution to revamp the SARS Internet site.
Flux said it would implement the locally-developed WebEasy content management solution over the next three months to revamp the look and feel of the SARS site. The solution will allow SARS to update and adapt its own online content once the solution is in place.
SARS has issued billions of rands` worth of tenders as part of its "roadmap to 2010" strategy, aimed at positioning the revenue service as an innovative revenue and customs agency that enhances economic growth and social development.
