All Government Tender Notices On GeBIZ From 1 April 200202 Apr 2002
From 1 April 2002, all Government tender notices will be posted on the Government Electronic Business (GeBIZ) website at www.gebiz.gov.sg. Suppliers will be able to view the details of all Government tender notices and related corrigendum, auction announcements and qualification notices, as well as tender awards on the GeBIZ website. Consolidated advertisements of government tender notices in the newspapers will be discontinued from the same date.
2 This move is in line with the e-Government initiative, and the Government?s effort to promote and facilitate e-commerce.
3 GeBIZ is the Singapore Government's one-stop e-commerce website that suppliers can access for a range of business opportunities available in the public sector. Besides viewing tender notices, suppliers can also download tender documents that may also be posted by the government procuring agency. In addition, suppliers would also be able to see Invitations-to-Quote (ITQs) posted by government agencies. Suppliers registered as GeBIZ Trading Partners can respond to these ITQs and carry out the actual procurement transactions online. The system will alert the GeBIZ Trading Partners of any purchase orders issued to them through e-mail.
4 The Government will be moving more of its procurement activities online to GeBIZ in the coming months. Suppliers are encouraged to sign up as GeBIZ Trading Partners early. Registration is a simple process and is currently free. An online guide is available to assist suppliers to register at the GeBIZ website (www.gebiz.gov.sg). Further assistance can be obtained throughe-mail or telephone call to the GeBIZ Service Centre at GeBIZ@starnet.gov.sg or Tel : 62353833.
