The system has tools that allow applicants to access information and procedures necessary for them to qualify for certain public tenders.

The suppliers can provide service to Lucrécia Paim Maternity, the National AIDS Control Institute, David Bernardino Pediatric Hospital and the National Departments of Public Procurement and Heritage, with last attached to the Ministry of Finance.

The next sectors to be included in this system, will be those of the Ministries of Construction and Public Works and Energy and Water,  according to National Director of Public Contracting, Rosaria Filipe.

According to the minister of Health, Silva Lutucuta, who attended the launch ceremony, the platform will allow the improvement of service delivery, especially in the perspective of expenses.

"With this tool we will monitor costs, prices and improve services as well as better manage budgets," said the minister.
