With an eye on bringing transparency in allotment of works in Cantonment areas, the Khadki Cantonment Board has decided to adopt e-tendering system to streamline the process of finalising bids.
A proposal to carry out e-tendering in the Khadki Cantonment Board (KCB) was finalised by engineering wing of the cantonment board recently, KCB officials said.
Officials of the engineering wing of the cantonment board said that now contractors and companies will file bids online. They will get a password and a user name to log in to the system to view the status of their tenders. The rates quoted and the time during which contractors need to complete the work will be encrypted on the system. It will only be decrypted when the bids are finalised.
"The system of finalising bids will be foolproof. The data will be encrypted and decrypted to prevent misuse," said Arun G Godbole, executive engineer of Khadki Cantonment Board.
Godbole said switching over to the online mode of tendering will also be cost-effective. "The entire proposal will not cost more than Rs 2-3 lakh," he added.
Khadki CEO S V R Chandershekhar said e-tendering will be helpful in finalising development works easily. "It has been decided that there will be a joint proposal for different cantonments, including Khadki and Pune," he said.
The move to go ahead with e-tendering came after the board members demanded that the finalisation of bids be streamlined. KCB member Sunil Jadhav said though the budget for Khadki cantonment is very less, there is a need to go ahead with e-tendering system.
Officials of the KCB said e-tendering will be a major facility as the cantonment board on an average finalises Rs 3-4 crore maintainance works in a year besides other development works.
