ICT tenders: Hardware makes a comeback

yudha caem

The National Tender Bulletin is a subdued affair this week as procurement activity across the public sector retreats to projects of lower value. The lessened interest is possibly a result of reduced budget allocations and increased scrutiny of tender processes.

Following weeks of rapidly declining interest, the hardware sector sees a comeback in the issue, attracting six invitations. The software sector, falters somewhat, falling short of receiving notices in the double digits. The services sector comes out tops in the edition with 11 new tender opportunities.

With little else to cause excitement it is the Department of Science and Innovation that provides this week’s notable advertisement. In it, the department says it is looking for technical consultants to support it in assessing applications and progress reports for the research and development tax incentive programme.
