The Government of Malaysia is expanding its flagship e-procurement system called e-Perolehan (eP) by opening more eP centres nationwide to improve efficiency and transparency in government spending.


The e-Perolehan initiative is a project under the Multimedia Super Corridor initiative. The system transforms the manual procurement practice into an electronic, internet-based practice.


Through the system, suppliers and contractors can receive, manage and process orders or payments from Government agencies through transactions done electronically on the Internet. Likewise, it enables Government agencies nationwide to procure goods and services from their suppliers electronically.


Since its launch in 2000, the system has transformed the government-to-business procurement landscape by leveraging on ICT to allow the Government to achieve greater productivity, cost efficiencies and transparency.


Dato’ Mohd Shafiq Bin Abdullah, Project Director of the e-Procurement unit at the Ministry of Finance, told FutureGov that as of 2012, the total amount that has been transacted through the eP system is RM15.485 billion (USD 4.9 billion), while savings for Government procurement through eBidding is RM26 million (USD 8.3 million).


At present, apart from the three eP centres at the Procurement Division of the Ministry of Finance in Putrajaya, Sabah, and Sarawak, the public may now visit 16 eP centres in other states.


The eP centres have been expanded to provide advice and assistance to suppliers in all aspects of the Ministry of Finance licence registration, as well as acquisition transactions with the government.


The centres provide free trainings and learning programmes to suppliers so they can familiarise themselves with the e-Perolehan system.
