Digital Content

The websites www.tender.co.tz; www.tender.co.ug and www.tender.co.ke were launched on 15th September, 2006. They are niche websites that consolidate all tender announcements in East Africa in print and other media in an easily accessible format online.

In the one year since their launch they have established a clear user-ship base with the follow: over 1,000 registered users spanning 35 countries and over 11,000 tender announcements available online since October, 2006. But not only do they have a critical mass of announcements but over 6,666 tender announcements have been downloaded. One of the site’s features is its alert system where members are sent a “tender alert” every time a tender in their industry category is uploaded.

It covers tender announcements from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and when possible Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia and Sudan. Although subscription based, the three sites offer a free 30 day trial prior to full subscription.
