By 2025, all regular public procurements will be conducted through the national e-bidding system, according to Prime Minister Decision No. 1402/QD-TTg dated July 13, approving the overall plan and roadmap for application of e-bidding in the 2016-25 period.

As defined by the Decision, regular public procurements are to purchase working equipment and tools under the Government’s regulations, cars, motorbikes, ships, boats and other means of transport.
The national e-bidding system addressed at muasamcong.mpi.gov.vn will be the sole system for online regular public procurements and management of bidding information.
Under the plan, from now to 2018, the system will be upgraded to incrementally increase the number of online public procurements. By 2025, all information on contractor selection process and contract performance will be posted publicly on this system.
Another target is that 70 percent of bidding packages regulated by the Bidding Law will be carried out on this system by 2025.
The Decision says that e-bidding is an important part of the e-government. It will help improve the state administration and state budget use efficiency, reform administrative procedures, increase the transparency, competitiveness and economic efficiency of bidding activities, and effectively prevent and control corruption.
The Decision assigns the Ministry of Planning and Investment to formulate and implement an open contracting initiative, a system for monitoring and evaluating bidding activities and a database on capacity and experience of contractors, together with an e-catalog for online regular and centralized procurements; and to select investors to join public-private partnership.- (VLLF)
