ICT Tenders: National orders rule

Read time 13min 20sec

The public sector continues to push through a spate of tender awards, while binning a number of others.

October saw the results section of the National Tender Bulletin grow from normal activity levels to unusually high numbers. This week's edition contains notices of 13 awards and seven cancellations, resulting in a total of 59 awards and 34 cancellations for the month.

The State IT Agency steps back to take a lower profile this week, posting two new tenders under the names of its clients and having nothing to post to the results section. 

National government, on the other hand, is strongly represented in the latest issue with opportunities coming from the departments of defence; agriculture, land reform and rural development; co-operative governance; police; trade and industry; and National Treasury.

The notice from National Treasury is of particular interest to the telecommunications sector as the Office of the Chief Procurement Officer advertises the transversal tender for supply and delivery of mobile communication services to the state for a period of five years. Notably, the Department of Police announced it has appointed Deloitte and Touche for the provision of a telecommunications audit and overpayment recovery services.

For the rest of the IT industry, the latest issue contains an equal spread of opportunities across the hardware, software and services sector.
