We are pleased to inform that UNDP is about to introduce on-line tendering system. eTendering, will be mandatory as of 01 September 2019 for the on-line management of all international competitive procurement valued USD 150,000 and above.
eTendering system is designed to facilitate the UNDP tender processes through online interaction. This system aims to enhance integrity and transparency of the tender processes and also enables streamlining of the procurement process: Bidders will use eTendering to register themselves, submit their bids, view solicitation documents and receive automatic notifications from the system whenever an event has been modified.
eTendering system addresses UNDP’s fundamental procurement values- fairness, integrity, transparency and accountability.
Some of the main benefits of eTendering system are:
✓ Electronic sealed bids: eTendering system encrypts bids submitted in the system and does not allow anyone to view any submitted information/data 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 accepted: The system will automatically not accept any bid after the deadline;
✓ Streamlines the bidding process: Bidders will register in the system, retrieve all information and solicitation documents and receive automatic notifications on certain stages of the procurement process. Bidders will 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.
