The Ministry of Economic Development in Wellington has issued a request for proposal (RFP) aimed at IT consultants as it looks to review the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS). GETS is a web-based tool used by many government agencies for the advertising of tenders.
According to the RFP, the Ministry feels GETS is an effective tool but its functionality has remained unchanged for a number of years.
The Ministry cites the increasing use of technology in procurement, including electronic tendering and a focus on sustainability, as reasons to undertake a review of the service.
The consultant must identify if these new requirements could be met through a modified or alternative GETS solution.
The deadline for replies is Monday, August 18. More details are avaliable on the GETS website under ICCNZ reference 22702.
