KOICA support for On-line E-Procurement System
The Department of Technical Education and Training (DTET) will
develop the On-line E-Procurement System with the support of Korea
International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), Sri Lanka office, to enhance
the department's efficiency procurement system, DTET Director General
Chithral Ambawatte said.
"It takes about five months to supply training material and other
education material to technical colleges through the manual procurement
system. Because of this, students have to face difficulties as training
material are not received at the proper time. With the introduction of
the new e-procurement system, the time duration will be reduced to one
month," he said.
"Principals can submit their list of material online. The head office
will select suitable suppliers. Supplier registration can also be done
This system is highly successful in Korea," Ambawatte said.
The KOICA Sri Lanka office and DTET jointly organised the workshop on
'Development of e-Procurement Systems' recently.
