Successful implementation of e-Tendering processing for civil works at IGCAR. E-tendering is carrying out all the tendering activities from the advertising of the requirement through website upto placing of the contract in an electronic form, using the internet. The main objective for e-tendering is to bring security, authenticity and accountability in a transparent way for the tendering process. The main advantages of the e-tendering process include: faster turnaround time, greater transparency, economic and eco-friendly, access to information all through the day, ease and speed with which changes or clarifications to the tender documents can be notified, enabling the bidder to modify or withdraw their bids any time prior to the closure of the tender, automatic rejection of incomplete bids, thereby giving bidders the opportunity to correct them, arguably expands the market by allowing smaller companies greater access, regardless of location, to respond in a cost-effective way without the traditional concern of how to get the bid in on time and arguably expands the market to a greater number of bidders and to bidders to a greater number of projects.
This Works Contracts Management System is an indigenous GUI developed for works contracts of CWG.
CM&BPS/CMWD/CEG operates the software system for works contract management by recording the details of in-coming estimates, files and other office correspondences etc., and monitors the file/estimate movements and action taken for clearing the proposals. WCMS activity has been further extended for online billing and online budget for ongoing works from site to accounts which involves work order, agreement uploading to systems by CM & BPs, after that M book allotment, work measurement entry, checking, upload and approve by CED/CEG, generation billing with measurement, abstract, secured advance, escalation billing, variation statement and comparative statement, pass order, payments etc. up to end of the project operated by CED/CEG. This WCMS also helps in monitoring online budget control, which shows the BE/RE, Actual Expenditure, target of expenditure by monthly, annually and project wise the budget commitment vis. a vis. Expenditure by way of RA bills through.
The WCMS essentially consists of the following module as enumerated below.
