IDA          TENDERS             CONTRACTS

Singapore - Three hundred and fifty new infocomm projects worth S$1.1 billion are up for tender in the public sector this financial year, IDA said.

The announcement was made to 700 industry players at a procurement briefing yesterday.

These new projects up for tender include a new facial screening system at immigration checkpoints, portable fingerprint scanners and the expansion of a network of CCTV cameras in Shenton Way and Orchard Road. These tenders, to be put up by the Ministry of Home Affairs, are valued at some S$102 million.

The Ministry of Defence is also sourcing for a new computerised military healthcare system that will streamline the storage of X-ray images of its personnel.

Of the S$1.1 billion worth of contracts, more than half are smaller sized projects valued at under S$500,000, IDA said. These are expected to provide opportunities for SMEs to participate in the tender process.

IDA said actual infocomm tenders in the last financial year 2009 totalled S$1.12 billion, but does not include the over S$600 million SoEAsy project for schools, which has yet to be awarded.
