Introducing a Unified Procurement System
Unified Public Procurement System for the country would provide a single user flow for government buyers, consolidating all government procurement onto a single platform leading to economies of scale, better price discovery and sharing of best practices
The following are the steps and processes in place to transition from eProcurement portals to a UPS on GeM:
1. Central Government buyers obtain a “GeM Availability Report and Past Transaction Summary” to take informed procurement decisions
2. GeM prompts buyers to publish a bid on GeM itself if the products or services that a buyer is looking for is not on the platform
3. The ID of GeM Availability Report is required to publish a bid on eProcurement platforms other than GeM (validated in real time)
4. After validation, a copy of the published tender will be returned to GeM for analysis
This would thus ensure that the functionality of eProcurement portals are brought on to GeM to provide a uniform experience for all buyers.
