Now a mobile phone means more to users as it enhances chances for those who join the service to participate in doing business with the Government and its institutions by receiving information on open tender at a go.
Mobile phone owners could join the service by sending a short message with the words “PPRA tender_category” to 15332, where the tender_category could be goods, works, consultancy, non-consultancy or disposal of public assets, depending on the tender category of interest to the user. The joining process would attract a one-off charge of Tshs. 1500/- whereas each tender alert message sent to the subscribers would be charged Tshs. 150/-. Under the system, subscribers are free to terminate the service by sending a short message to 15332 with the words “Stop” or “Remove”. For Swahili Version Click here
