ICT tenders: COVID-19 corrections

Read time 6min 00sec

This week's National Tender Bulletin reflects the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on government procurement.

The first casualty is in the new tenders section as only one new opportunity is advertised this week by the Mine Health and Safety Council. The main body of the bulletin is taken up by notices of amended deadlines for outstanding tenders. Interestingly, the public sector appears to be cautious as to when President Cyril Ramaphosa's national lockdown is expected to come to an end with deadlines being pushed back to 30 April and later.

While government may not be looking to make use of the budgets that have come into play with the new fiscal year procurement officers have made some inroads into outstanding tenders. This week sees five cancellations and award notices announced respectively.
