Use of e-procurement system mandatory as of September

TUNEPS, the Tunisian e-procurement system, will be mandatory as of next September for all administrations and public institutions. said President of the National Observatory of Public Procurement (French: ONMP) Rim Zehri.

A relevant decree will be published soon, the ultimate purpose being to secure transparency and face up to corruption, she said at an awareness day on procedures of public procurement online held Monday at the seat of the Civil Aviation and Airports Office (French: OACA).

Zehri said the system, in force since June 2014, is intended to sharpen the effectiveness of public procurement as well as competitiveness by means of ensuring equality of opportunity in tenders and shorten waiting times for concluding contracts. 274 Public purchasers have so far joined the platform in addition to over 1,800 suppliers, she further said.

Director of the Central Unit of Good Governance at the Transport Ministry Najwa Hssoumi said 4 out of 26 firms coming under the ministry joined the platform but have not yet started applying the system.
