ICT Tenders: Slim pickings

Read time 4min 10sec

This week's National Tender Bulletin takes brevity to a new level for 2019, leaving little for the private ICT sector to consider.

Services requests lead the issue, followed closely by software interest. Hardware providers, meanwhile, only get two tenders to consider and so does the telecommunications sector.

The bulletin closes with a nod from the State Information Technology Agency (SITA). While it has been more active of late - including a new tender published in the current edition – SITA continues to make award notices with values undisclosed.
