The Central Procurement Technical Unit (CPTU) and the Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the hosting of e-GP data centre at the National Data Centre on Sunday, says a press statement. IME Division Secretary Md Mofizul Islam and ICT Division Secretary Subir Kishore Choudhury were present at the signing ceremony held at the Conference Room of CPTU on the Planning Commission campus in the city. Director General of CPTU Md Faruque Hossain, Additional Secretary (Admin) of IME Division AKM Badrul Mazid, Executive Director of BCC Parthapratim Deb, Lead Procurement Specialist of World Bank Dr Zafrul Islam, Director of National Data Centre of BCC Tarique M Barkatullah and other officials were also present. In the middle of last year, CPTU got the e-GP data centre established at the National Data Centre housed at Bangladesh Computer Council of the ICT Division. Since then, the e-GP data centre has been performing well and catering to the needs of growing number of tenderers and procuring entities getting registered with the e-GP system. Another e-GP data centre has also been housed at CPTU for back-up support. The BCC has provided space and infrastructural support to CPTU for the e-GP data centre.
The objective of signing of the MoU is to specify responsibilities regarding operation, safety, security, web services, situational obligations, dispute settlement and connectivity of the e-GP data centre housed at BCC. The ICT-based electronic government procurement (e-GP) system has been growing fast since its introduction in 2011 in the process of public procurement. CPTU has been expanding e-GP under a project titled, 'Digitising Implementation Monitoring and Public Procurement (DIMAPP)' supported by World Bank.
