Desirous of transforming the Nigerian Maritime Administration And Safety Agency (NIMASA) into a 21st century compliant entity, the NIMASA Administration is keen on implementing e-Procurement (electronically managed tendering, bidding and procurement system) as the platform for higher efficiency, greater productivity and better service delivery. As would be naturally expected, the Agency is familiar with quite a few Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems. However, the need for a localized system with features and functionalities specifically designed to cater for the data management needs of the Agency with special regards for the laws and regulations guiding the processes and functions of the Agency in its tendering, bidding and procurement activities.
In view of above organizations need to incorporate best practice in procurement and this is especially important in the governance and compliance areas. Century Data Integrated Services Limited (CDISL) was awarded the contract, in October 2014, to deploy an E-Procurement and E-Tendering Application to NIMASA. We are proud to say that after in-depth consultation, coupled with appropriate e-Tools. Our e-procurement and e-tendering software has been developed in-house affording us the flexibility to cost effectively meet our clients (NIMASA) needs and to ensure maximum impact on their bottom line.
