How does the Government ensure that opportunities to participate in quotations/tenders are made available fairly and openly to all suppliers?
All government agencies are required to post their invitations for quotations and tenders openly on the Government electronic business portal (GeBIZ) (https://www.gebiz.gov.sg ). This is mandatory for all procurements above $6,000.
Suppliers who wish to participate in Government quotations or tenders can register as a GeBIZ Trading Partner and receive a free user account. Currently, there are over 50,000 registered GeBIZ trading partners.
The Government also shares pertinent information on public sector pipeline projects to provide suppliers with better visibility of projects over the medium term. This helps businesses to seek partners early to better plan for upcoming business opportunities. For example, GovTech's Industry Briefing is held yearly to let suppliers know of upcoming ICT projects.
In addition, GeBIZ Trading Partners may sign up to be alerted on business opportunities via GeBIZ's RSS (Really Simple Syndication) or via email on SPRINGs EnterpriseOne portal (http://www.enterpriseone.gov.sg/SignUp.aspx).
