In a bid to bring in more transparency in its procurement process, Punjab government today asked the technical education department to follow e-tendering process for its purchase requirements.


Tender notices must be uploaded on the department's website and letters must be sent to prominent manufacturers or firms dealing in the matter, said Punjab Technical Education Minister Anil Joshi.

Adequate publicity should be given to all tender notices to achieve maximum competition, he said stressing that specifications for any item must be broad based and not tailor-made to suit any particular manufacturer.

Department should also be cautious against collusive bidding or pool system in the tendering process, the minister added.
