Procurement and Contracts Modernization Program
Institution: Central Administration, Ministry of Economy and Finances
Theme: E-Procurement
Implementation Date: Jan 01, 2003
Summary: The State Procurement and Contracts Modernization Program of Uruguay aims to offer online information on all the Uruguayan State’s purchases. One of the main products being developed is a site (http://www.comprasestatales.gub.uy) where the state’s procurement is published. Besides the corresponding norms and institutional information, it also publishes the tenders in process (public and by invitation) and the Orders; Allotments and Lists of Bidders for Direct Purchases and Centralized Purchases.

The website’s operation is supported by the Sistema de Información de Compras Estatales - SICE (State Procurement Information System). This system for the input of all information regarding State contracts is mandatory for the Divisions in the Central Administration. It operates as an auxiliary system for the Sistema Integrado de Información Financiera - SIIF (Integrated Financial Information System), implemented in the Central Administration under the coordination of the Ministerio de Economía y Finanzas – MEF (Ministry of Economy and Finance) to modernize and bring greater efficiency and transparency to the accounting and financial system.
Impact: The State Procurement and Contracts Modernization Program offers greater transparency, competitiveness and efficiency in the Central Administration’s public acquisition processes. Through the site one can follow procurement processes and contracts, and the public has easy access to information on the prices and terms of the State’s requirements. Until July 29, 2003 the site had published 157 public tenders and 79 contract allotments; 846 tenders by invitation and 665 contract allotments, 27,374 direct procurement allotments, 320 exceptional direct procurement allotments, 887 invitations for direct purchase orders and 947 direct purchase order allotments.
