Government e-Procurement: Electronic Tendering System in the Hong Kong SAR  
Product Ref: 02/137C Company: N/A

Product Type: Case Industry: Public Sector & Non-Profit

Related Product(s): Teaching Note
The Electronic Tendering System (ETS) was a flagship project under the Hong Kong Special Administration Region's E-Government Strategy to lead by example in the adoption of electronic means for government transactions with the public and businesses. With the success of the initial launch in April 2000, the HKSAR planned to extend the ETS to all other Government procurements, with a goal of transferring 80% of all procurement tenders online by the end of 2003. This involved providing direct connectivity between the ETS platform and the Government departments, via an end-to-end online tendering system to meet the departments' procurement needs. Also under consideration was an Electronic Marketplace System (EMS) for the small value purchases, and integrating the two systems for a "Total Procurement Solution". This is an E-Business implementation case covering issues associated with IT implementation and systems integration within an enterprise and among its network of suppliers, partners and customers. Specifically, discussions are focused on how the implementation of an IT project has brought about changes in various aspects of a corporate organisation, and how these changes are managed by means of communications, organisational restructures, processes, and technology.
