GETS overhaul part of four-year programme

GETS overhaul part of four-year programme

Changes to the Government Electronic Tenders (GETS) website are slowly progressing.

In February, a Reseller News investigation into the GETS tender process found that while many IT companies were happy with the website accessibility, concerns were expressed with the amount of time and cost required to submit a tender. A GETS review was underway at the time.

Ministry of Economic Development Government Procurement Development Group manager Phil Weir says a four-year government procurement reform agenda has been announced and an audit of the GETS technical infrastructure will go ahead.

“This is scheduled to commence in July. Findings as to whether the existing system is capable of supporting improvements to functionality such as those suggested during the GETS review [for example, an electronic tender box] will be fed into the wider IT support needs analysis, along with the recommendations of the review.”

Weir also says that work on developing a support library of guidance, templates and tools that help efficiency and compliance will continue.

“Guidance material published this calendar year to support current practice will, however, need to be reviewed next year. [This is] to ensure it reflects any changes in government procurement policy and supports the implementation of Job Summit actions to cut red tape, increase tender opportunities and make it easier for small and medium-sized enterprises to bid for government business.”
