dgMarket is an e-procurement tool — a government tender information system available in 17 different languages. It serves as an electronic marketplace for government procurement information such as tender notices, contract awards and bidding documents.
One of the main objectives of dgMarket is to increase transparency and efficiency in government procurement in developing countries by providing a state-of-the-art procurement solution to interested government purchasing agencies. The system also aims to enable suppliers from developing and industrial countries to learn about government procurement opportunities that exist elsewhere.
This Web-based tool supports the procurement needs of developing countries by providing the following online: tender notices, revisions, clarifications and contract awards; bidding documents and/or other files; direct Web entry by purchasers across many different agencies; and work flow associated with differentiated user roles.
