Government buying from e-commerce sites Government buying from e-commerce sites
About this initiative
The initiative enables public officers to make efficient and seamless smaller value purchases off commercial digital platforms through use of technology.
To facilitate this initiative, an intermediary interface ('middleware') has been developed to connect Government’s corporate systems with commercial digital platforms.
What it means to participating businesses
This initiative seeks to reduce manual processing work across the procure-to-pay process (e.g. manual reconciliation and manual submission of invoices), and thereby enabling faster payments to our suppliers.
This initiative provides added incentive for SME vendors to bring businesses online and digitalise processes from order to invoice to payment, and improve productivity.
Through this digitalisation, SMEs will be better equipped to supply to buyers beyond Singapore’s shores in the e-commerce space.
We welcome you to start the journey with us.
