Government spends a substantial part of its revenue in procurement. Ministry of Finance
had directed that all the Government departments should switch over to e-tendering from
1st July 2007.E-Trading replaces manual paper-based tender processes with
electronically facilitated processes based on best tendering practices to save time and
money. Electronic Tendering facility enables on-line submission of technical bids and
price bids in standard format/templates. Right e-procurement model along with properly
managed contextual factors can lead to first order benefits such as better price,
transparency, innovation etc and ultimately result in good governance for masses.
The Programme is being conducted with the hope that once the government officials and
senior personnel of PSU’s/other industries are made aware of the security and
accountability issues related to e-tendering, they will be in a better position to take well-
informed decisions and prevent e-tendering scams.
The programme coverage includes the following:
Tendering process presently being adopted by Government/PSUs
Shift to Electronic Tendering
Legal Requirements and Legislation related to procurement
Security Threats: Confidentiality, Integrity, Impersonation etc.
Panel Discussion: Participants would formulate a mechanism to take the
outcome of this workshop forward towards implementation. Panel experts and
faculty will be available for advice
The course is designed for top management executives working with state governments,
public sector undertakings, corporates and consultancy organisations in charge of
/responsible for making decisions in order to effectively introduce and implement these
mechanisms in their organisations.
