OGCIO rolls out new measures to facilitate government procurement of IT products
     The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) announced today (August 8) that a new supplier listing arrangement for government procurement of information technology (IT) products will be introduced in October to increase flexibility and efficiency. Interested suppliers are welcome to apply for admission to the list all year round starting today.

     The new listing arrangement covers three major categories, namely network products, server systems and microcomputer equipment, with a number of sub-categories that comprise a wider classification of IT products. The new arrangement encourages competition and accelerates the procurement of the latest and most suitable IT products to support the increasing demand of digital government services. The requisite for admission of IT products is relaxed and the experience requirements on supporting staff are also modified, to facilitate a wider participation from the IT industry, in particular local tech start-ups and small and medium enterprises, to offer more new and innovative IT products to the Government. The OGCIO highlights that the new listing arrangement would make it simpler for government bureaux and departments to purchase different kinds of IT products while upholding the quality of products and services acquired.

     For details of the new procurement arrangement, as well as the online briefing session to be held on August 22, please visit the OGCIO website (www.ogcio.gov.hk/en/our_work/business/business_window/gitp.html). Interested suppliers are welcome to submit applications for admission to the new supplier list by completing the online application form on the GovHK website (eform.cefs.gov.hk/form/ogc019/en/).
