Detik reports today that the Indonesian Government’s Goods and Services Procurement Agency (LKPP) has recently signed an agreement with 27 Indonesian Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to help conduct its e-Tender program. This is intended to make the government e-Tender process more effective and transparent.
The agreement will enable all the district governments to choose any of the 27 ISPs to conduct the e-Tender. Moreover, all the procurement proposal values submitted from those ISPs will be publicly available on the LKPP’s e-Katalog website page.
The Indonesian government is gradually transforming all tender processes into electronic tenders. LKPP believes that the process will result in up to IDR 55 trillion ($5.7 billion) annual savings.
The e-Tender process could become an interesting opportunity for startups out there, and in fact one has already made its move, as you may recall featured startup Pengadaan.net from earlier this month.
