ICT tenders: Calling on telecoms

Read time 14min 10sec

Major projects from national and provincial government have encountered an unusual barrier as the National Tender Bulletin goes unpublished for yet another week. Tenders with an expected value of over R500 000 are required to be published in the National Tender Bulletin to enable equitable access to these contracts and ensure government reaps the rewards of a competitive bidding process.

Local government and state owned entities, meanwhile, have fewer restrictions and have been busy posting requirements to National Treasury's eTender portal.

The telecoms sector will be pleased to see a jump in demand for its services attracting requests in the double digits. Software requests, however, lead the issue followed closely by interest in services after lackluster demand last week. Hardware continues to attract tenders, but demand has dropped off somewhat.
