ICT Tenders: Pre-budget buying

Read time 10min 20sec

The National Tender Bulletin is yet to reflect the slowdown in activity that typically occurs in the weeks surrounding the annual State of the Nation address and national budget presentation.

For the public sector, these sittings of Parliament are the biggest events in the diary. Even for those that don't make the trip down to Cape Town, the preparation and anticipation can prove to be distraction from the normal load. This slowdown tends to extend past the budget presentation as departments consider their allocations for the new financial year.

This year, however, government's procurement departments appear to be focused on keeping their eyes on the ball and maintaining high levels of activity. These efforts again favour the hardware sector as the public sector addresses its needs for updated and additional infrastructure. Demand for services follows as complimentary requirements for support and maintenance are stipulated. Software interest continues to lag behind, nevertheless, this week's advertisements see opportunities moving beyond licensing to solution requests.
