This case describes three different approaches to electronic purchasing taken by a State Government: 1) ERP-to-ERP by State Health (SH) (the State Government¡¦s largest spender); 2) a central catalogue (SBGC: the State Government Buyers' Catalogue) maintained by government purchasing officers; and 3) an outsourced gateway hub known as JEBI (the government's Joint eBusiness Initiative project), intended for use initially by government agencies and eventually small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) across the State. The gateway hub approach needs to incorporate the other systems' transaction volumes for it to be viable and to eventually realise the longer-term goal of creating an e-business marketplace for the State's SMEs. How will the JEBI project manager co-opt the other electronic purchasing projects to its cause?
