6 eProcurement challenges ▪ Buyer Adoption Strong Leadership, Political support and top-down approach is critical Securing high level support to negotiate better prices through volume aggregation Commitment to the business model and approach chosen for roll-out Commitment in achieving process efficiencies and effecting changes in legal & regulatory framework to streamline the process changes IT readiness -infrastructure & user training

7 eProcurement challenges ▪ Supplier Management Relationship must be beneficial to suppliers Providing support & services for suppliers who are not yet prepared to go online Working with smaller businesses not enabled for e- Procurement Continuing to build and sustain relationships with suppliers

8 eProcurement challenges ▪ Integration to Legacy & Back-end systems Current applications are customized hence integration – big challenge Many Govt depts are still running manual systems, implementation of pre & post procurement systems and building integration is critical IT infrastructure readiness in terms of hardware, software, connectivity/ linkage is below par Government would intend to leverage existing investments and hence integration assumes importance

9 eProcurement challenges ▪ Security & data sharing Internet enabled procurement means transaction on public domain,perception holds contradictory to the confidential nature of the bidding process Physical bidding process provides documentary proofs and the electronic system is assumed to be incapable of providing the same e-Procurement process is about data sharing, communication & is competitive - security of such a system is of paramount importance Evolving regulatory frame works Choice of technology in the rapidly changing technology landscape

10 Integrated Commerce Platform: Easy Source From Customization to Configuration From Unified to Modular From technology Solution to Business Solution Possible Models of Implementation

13 Suggested approach models ASP or Hosted Model License Model ASP model graduating to transfer of technology

14 Implementation risks & mitigation strategy Maturity Level Security is paramount Poor system design Inadequate & or inefficient purchasing process Poor Systems performance / Software failure Security Breaches User suppliers adoption Mis-representation of process by users Connectivity for SME

15 Wipro learnings & experience in roll-out of e-Pro in the Govt Public bodies successful in implementing e-Procurement make and communicate clear policy decisions and directives to all concerned stake holders with measurable performance indicators and objectives Governments identify areas of process improvement and automation, with a view to process re-engineering Outline specific road map with time lines for implementing e- Procurement in terms of applications as well as government departments Phase wise implementation approach Deployment e- Procurement through the hosted model and then move on to actual transfer of technology

16 Wipro learnings & experience in roll-out of e-Pro in the Govt Applications /e- procurement processes that can offer immediate quick wins in terms of tangible savings are given a higher priority Applications that result in process improvement and efficiencies are deployed in subsequent phases A overall process automation vision is created and implemented in pilot departments Subsequently the entire set of e-Procurement applications is rolled out to other departments Security is given prime importance in these applications Applications & process should preferably adhere to World Bank guidelines along with local statutory requirements

17 The Integrated Business Process From disparate business processes To integrated business processes From Multiple applications to single application From islands on information to a centralized business information Typical Integrated Business Model

18 Suggestions for e-GP system Implementation ▪ Suggestions based on experience with GOI, State Govt Implementations GOI Should make clear policies to implement e-Procurement across all the government departments and communicate to all concerned stake holders with measurable performance indicators and objectives GOI should detail specific road map with time lines for implementing e-Procurement in terms of applications as well as government departments GOI should conduct a business process study of procurement to arrive at feature list, best practices model for e-Procurement that can be rolled across all the government departments in the country. A suitable consultant with prior experience in e- Governance and e-Procurement in India may be appointed to do this as well as the above activities

19 Suggestions for e-GP system Implementation GOI should engage in establishing a suitable vendor or empanel two to three vendors who can provide infrastructure, applications, domain knowledge, process re-engineering knowledge & consulting All departments should be directed to use the applications with specific incentives for using e-Procurement Evaluation of computer literacy of the users in departments, the task of improving the computer literacy should be entrusted to a separate set of vendors Complete spend analysis of government spending and the correct e-Procurement tools to address various types of spends should be carried out

20 Suggestions for e-GP system Implementation GOI to implement e-Procurement in a phase wise manner starting with Reverse Auctions addressing major spend in pilot departments, GOI realize quick wins and boost the E Procurement initiative The next phase should cover ETMS for the pilot departments the integrated reverse auction as well electronic tendering in the pilot phases should be carried out on an ASP basis The ETMS and Reverse Auction combination should be then rolled out to other departments and GOI should allow the process to stabilize over a period of 1 to 2 years The eventual transfer of technology should be planned subsequent to stabilization of ASP model

22 Chhattisgarh Experience - Difficulties ▪ Process of modification of tendering rules and guidelines took too long because of frequent transfer of officials ▪ Lack of awareness of nitty-gritties of web based tendering process among senior IAS officers ▪ Availability of computers and internet connections in some government offices posed a big problem ▪ Absence of a secretary level nodal officer for e- governance / web based tendering created delays.
