METI procurement procedures fully digitalised from January 1, 2017

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has announced that its procurement procedures will become fully digitalized from January 1st.  Thus far, it had already conducted part of its tenders online, but starting the new year all tenders will be conducted online.  Online tender procedures will take on the common public procurement platform GEPS.

The move will also end the cumbersome practice of requiring bidders to bring documents in person. Furthermore, large documents which cannot be uploaded can be sent by mail.

The Ministry also decreased the amount of documents for tendering from the present 80 pages to about 10 for each tender. For supplier wishing to know more about the changes, the Ministry organises a meeting on December 12 in Tokyo.
