  • Suppliers Depts percieve eProcurement to be a
    Magic wand
  • To resolve all ills of the Govt Procurement

  • To be Responsive, a Contractor shall have
    Similar work experience in previous years
  • Objective is to select a contractor with relevant
  • Definition unclear- gives scope for subjectivity
  • Case1 Disqualified for not having internal roads
    experience in a Building complex
  • Case 2 Disqualified for not having experience in
    C.D works in a Highway project
  • Case 3 Disqualified for not having experience in
    C.D works in a Canal Project
  • Similar work Criteria is redundant as Depts
    Prescribe one more criteria I.e., experience in
    execution of Prime items, which any way fulfils
    the objective.

Reform Dispense off similar work criteria and
instead seek for experience in Civil Engg works.
  • Documentation to prove credentials
  • Depts list out documents to be uploaded by bidder
  • Mismatch between the list in online form and bid
  • Suppliers rely on the list in online form
  • Supplier is disqualified citing documentation
    requirement in the bid document

Reform Depts to give a comprehensive list of
documentation requirement in online bid
submission form. A bid shall be qualified if all
the documents are attached properly as per this
  • Undertakings by bidders

    contractors on a Non-Judicial stamp paper

Reform Online Undertakings, Supplier clicks I
Accept button
  • Modification of Eligibility criteria
  • The departments modify bid eligibility criteria
    after publication of tender notice on
    eProcurement platform.
  • In some instances it is done a few days before
    bid submission closing time, by which time a few
    bids could have been already submitted in the
  • This is a serious impediment to the transparency
  • Could be to tailor criteria to suit a favored

Reform Bid eligibility criteria shall be freezed
by the departments prior to publication of tender
notice and any modifications of eligibility
criteria through corrigendum shall not be allowed
