The Ministry of Finance has embarked on an e-purchase system "Tanafus," aimed at strengthening control regulations over purchases, besides promoting transparency. The system, which will save money, time and effort, will also help fight financial and administrative corruption.
Tanafus is an important cornerstone in e-governance, and one of the most important national projects.
The project includes unification and facilitation of competitive purchase procedures in all government sectors.
The project supports the principle of transparency between government agencies and suppliers, in addition to reaching larger number of suppliers, which will have a positive impact by promoting competition and enhancing quality.
Tanafus has many features -- it is a national strategy, and a comprehensive electronic system that is fast, easy and dependable. The system is flexible and can be connected with other national projects. Its flexibility and sustainability gives it the ability to face variables with potential of development and reliability.
It also protects rights, privacy and security and offers a suitable e-business climate besides providing an encouraging environment to people who deal with government apparatuses through its various facilities.
It provides reports, outputs and statistics that serve decision-makers, justice and transparency.
The project also aims to modernize working models and procedures to strengthen the effectiveness of government purchasing processes. Contracts will be signed based on government purchases and competitiveness to raise levels of performance, quality and improve operations.
The system aims to forge continuous cooperation and partnerships between various government agencies and the private sector. It will increase the use of electronic government dealings, and set up an advanced national purchase program based on international standards. The system aims to achieve competitiveness in government electronic purchase, and satisfy government agencies and those dealing with them through a comprehensive electronic working environment.
