This is a tender notice aggregation and alert service.
In Ethiopia, almost all high amount purchases are done through public tender and the biggest buyer is the government itself. By law, all tender notices must be advertised to the public in a newspaper and/or radio or TV to attract as many bidders as possible and make the purchasing process as fair as possible. Since there are more than a dozen newspapers in the country that get published either daily or weekly, in different languages, it’s a bit difficult for most companies to keep track of new opportunities. 2merkato Tender Alert Service is created to solve this problem.
We gather tender notices from various sources including some sent to our office directly and publish them on our website 6 times a week, except Sunday. Our encoders file each tender by sector/category and publish them on our website.
Our web app has a subscription feature that lets users subscribe to specific categories. Every night we send out email alerts to users based on these subscription details.
Users have the option of using our web app to access the information or they can use our android app to get the service. Both the web app and mobile app are multilingual.
