Technology interest remains constant in this week’s edition of the National Tender Bulletin, despite the ongoing subdued procurement activity from government. 

The State IT Agency (SITA) plays a key role in this week’s offerings, posting over half of the new advertisements under its own name as well as under the auspices of its clients. It has also extended the submission deadline on four of its outstanding tenders.

As the public sector’s technology procurement and services focal point, SITA has for many years disappointed in its lack of activity in the tender bulletin. However, the agency has been playing a far bigger role since the beginning of the year – not simply in comparison to the restricted procurement practices brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic but in relation to what it has commonly produced in an average year.

This week’s new opportunities are spread almost evenly across the hardware, software and services sectors. The close of the edition sees both cancellations and tender awards featuring three notices apiece.
