Existing MIS (PROMIS) of CPTU has few features of e-GP (IFB publication, contract award publication, etc.) Existing MIS will be enhanced to form first phase of e- GP for its piloting in four key target agencies (RHD, LGED, BWDB & REB) Public Procurement Reform Project II (PPRPII) has one specific component to introduce e-GP on a pilot basis with the central database in the Central Procurement Technical Unit (CPTU), the nodal procurement policy unit of the Government.
