ICT tenders: Advancing networks

Read time 12min 00sec

The National Tender Bulletin regains some bulk after last week's skinny appearance. Demand for technology also rebounds, driven in no small part by multiple requests posted by both the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health and the State IT Agency (SITA).

Interest in networking stands out this week with SITA advertising requirements for the Department of Employment and Labour, as well as the Department of Environmental Affairs. The Financial Intelligence Centre and the merSETA add requests for their wide area networks respectively. The South African National Biodiversity Institute closes the issue with a notice that it has awarded the contract for the installation and upgrade of networking infrastructure at the Harold Porter National Botanical Garden (Betty’s Bay) and the Karoo Desert. XON Systems secured the tender at a cost of R1.2 million.

This week's new opportunities are spread almost evenly across the hardware, services and software sectors with only one point difference between them. The number of cancellations has decreased to four from last week's seven. Awards meanwhile have increased, favouring hardware tenders.
