Jamaican Government to spend $51 million on e-procurement

2 April 2015

The Jamaican Government is to spend $51 million on its electronic government procurement system to strengthen its public procurement for purchasing and tendering agencies and suppliers.

These activities would be automated and integrated in a single portal.

Of the $51 million, which is due to be ratified by Jamaica’s parliament, just over $31 million will go towards the hosting server and electronic procurement system, scheduled to be in place by July.

Other amounts include $1.47 million to be set aside for training, $575,000 for a final project evaluation and a project audit costing of just over $1 million. Funding is being jointly provided by the Jamaican government and Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
