The e-GP system is a single web portal from where and through which PAs and PEs will be able to perform their procurement related activities using a dedicated secured web based dashboard.
The e-Government Procurement solution introduced under Public Procurement Reform (PPR) Process is being supported by World Bank and being used by all government organisations which will help in ensuring equal access to the Bidders/Tenderers, efficiency, transparency and accountability in the public procurement process in the country.
The system is hosted in e-GP Data Center at CPTU, and the e-GP web portal is accessible by the PAs and PEs through internet for their use.
Prime Minister Hasina said the activities of the government have been made transparent and accountability has been established through the usage of the ICT.
E-tendering will be introduced, initially, to four target procuring agencies: Local Government Engineering Department, Roads and Highways, Bangladesh Water Development Board and Rural Electrification Board.
It would be expanded to 16 procurement entities of the four agencies and Central Procurement Technical Unit. Later a total of 308 PEs of the four agencies will come under the system.
