|Overview : |
We are pleased to inform that UNDP has going to implement an on-line tendering system.
The eTendering will be made mandatory from 01 September 2019, with the on-line management of all international competitive procurement valued at USD 150,000 and above.
The eTendering system is designed to facilitate the UNDP tender process through online interaction. The system aims to enhance the integrity and transparency of the tender process and also enables the streamlining of the procurement process: Bidders can use eTendering to submit their bids, view solicitation documents and receive automatic notifications from the system whenever an event has been modified.
The eTendering system addresses UNDP’s fundamental procurement values, such as fairness, integrity, transparency and accountability.
Some of the main benefits of the eTendering system are:
✓ Electronic sealed bids: The eTendering system encrypts the bids submitted in the system and does not allow anyone to view any information provided before the bidding deadline.
✓ Electronic stamping of the bids: The system stamps all information submitted by bidders and prevents anyone from altering, deleting, or adding anything to the bid after the deadline for submission.
✓ No late submissions are accepted: The system will automatically not accept any bid after the deadline.
✓ Streamlines the bidding process: Bidders can register in the system, retrieve all information and solicitation documents, and receive automatic notifications on certain stages of the procurement process. Bidders may also submit their bid online, edit it directly in the system, and receive automatic notifications once the evaluation is finalized and the contract is awarded.
✓ Provides an audit trail: As the eTendering system records all activity in the system, it keeps an audit trail for increased accountability and transparency.
We hereby inform you that a training/s for using the eTendering system for bidders will be organized and their schedule will be timely announced.
Before attending a training session, bidders are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the eTendering system by reviewing the guides/videos available on public UNDP Webpage.
