RE: “Compulsory public e-Procurement takes effect in July” (The New Times, March 29).
This is good in the sense of reducing paperwork and saving time. But again, there is need to sensitise local contractors on timely submission of bids. They tend to submit at the last minute only to get caught up in red tape, thus losing out on the opportunity.
It’s quite a shame to prepare your bid only to fail to submit in time.
