Tanzania: Electronic Tendering System Takes Off
Source Date: Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Focus: Citizen Engagement
Country: Tanzania
Created: Aug 21, 2013

The Government Procurement Services Agency (GPSA) has introduced an electronic tendering system in order to ease and fast track the procurement process.

The GPSA Director of Procurement and Advisory Services, Mr Yoswam Nyongera told reporters that the current system takes too long and in some cases leads to some costs.

He said that the system will also help bidders to accomplish the entire process online unlike the current trend whereby they have to travel to localities where the tenders are to be received and filed.

Mr Nyongera said that currently the public institution spends between 10m/- and 15m/- per tender which he said is expensive. Thus the government finds it proper to hand over the task to GPSA as a cost cutting measure.

He said the move has also helped the government to come up with uniform prices for items procured by its institutions unlike previous cases where the price of the same item was pegged differently. Mr Nyongera said that for the past three years they have managed to sell to the government and its institutions items worth 88.9bn/-, including fuel.
