ICT tenders: Roaring back

Read time 13min 00sec

Government procurement officers have moved into high gear again following last week's slump in activity.

The software sector is particularly popular in the latest edition and includes demand for software development, customisation and enhancements. Hardware follows with notices targeting offerings across computing, networking, peripherals, server and storage. Services, on the other hand, sees a slight dip in interest.

The State IT Agency also returns to the bulletin with two new tenders on offer, four cancellations and a single software award valued at R670 000. These add to a busy results section as a total of eight outstanding tenders get cancelled and six resulting in contract negotiations.

New tenders

These systems are to be installed into 19” vertical flight cases with lockable caster wheels or similar. The SA Air Force reserves the right to request a demonstration of the offered system outdoors as well as inside an aircraft hanger before final awarding of contract.
