Government launches Electronic Tender System
June 14, 2018 7:03 pm
The Ministry of Economy has launched an online electronic tendering (eTender) Portal which massively streamlines the government tender process, giving registered traders a one-stop shop to view, submit and participate in government tenders.
Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says Fiji has seen a big spike in government tenders as a result of the unprecedented slate of development projects taking place across the country.
Sayed-Khaiyum says the new system gives Fijians a new level of transparency in the tender process, which safeguards against corruption, and that has the flexibility and efficiency needed to support the massive new developments Government is delivering for Fiji and its people.
The launch of the eTender Portal is the latest in a string of achievements to bring greater transparency and accountability to the government tender process and cut down on the time and cost of submitting, reviewing and awarding paper-based tenders.
The new online platform has been launched in partnership with TenderLink, a leading eTender provider in the Australasia region.
