e-tender steps forward: 38 banks now linked to e-GP for payments
June 18, 2015
To enhance efficiency and transparency in the process of public procurement the government of Bangladesh is implementing e-tender under an integrated system called electronic government procurement (e-GP).

The Central Procurement Technical Unit (CPTU) of the Implementation Monitoring and Evaluation Division (IMED), Ministry of Planning, under the Public Procurement Reform Project-II, with support from the World Bank is carrying out the task of e-GP implementation.
In line with the government vision for Digital Bangladesh, CPTU has a plan to roll out e-GP in all government procuring entities.
Director General of CPTU Md. Faruque Hossain said implementation of e-tender in all government procuring entities cannot happen overnight. Technical, logistic and capacity issues are involved here.
Involvement and active support of procuring entities, tenderers, banks, media and civil society are required to take the initiative forward and make the system sustainable, he said.
But this is really encouraging that now public procurement is conducted through e-GP by 1875 government procuring entities of 96 agencies under 24 ministries, the DG added.
The number of banks linked to e-GP system to collect Tenderers registration and Document fees and securities for e-tendering is also increasing. On June 18, 2015 (Thursday), the new generation South Bangla Agriculture and Commerce Bank Ltd signed an MoU with CPTU in this connection. The Secretary of the IME Division, Md ShahidUllah Khandaker, presided over the signing ceremony at the Conference Room of the CPTU. With this the total number of banks involved with e-GP stands at 38. Until June 17, 2015 the number of tenderers registered with e-GP was 15332 and the total number of branches of 37 banks is 1690.

The Secretary in the signing ceremony appreciated the role of World Bank in supporting the government for the implementation of the project under which e-GP is being introduced. Managing Director of the SBAC Rafiqul Islam, DMD Md Shawkat Ali and Senior Vice-President Md Mizanur Rahman, and officials of CPTU, IME Division and World Bank were present on the occasion.
The Secretary said there is no hassle in submitting tenders in e-GP system and registered tenderers can do it from their home online.
The total process in public procurement is conducted electronically under e-GP system. Starting from tender invitation to contract award, contract management and procurement monitoring are done online under e-GP, he added. Until June 17, 2015, a total of 25670 tenders were invited under e-GP and 16044 contracts were processed electronically.
The DG, CPTU highlighted the features of the national e-GP portal (www.eprocure.gov.bd) and success of e-tendering under the PPRP-II after its piloting in 2011. He said CPTU is enhancing capacity of tenderers in e-GP. The DG, CPTU observed that smooth and quick services from the banks would boost up confidence of tenderers in the system.
