Public Consultation on Service Contracts and Financial/Technical Biddable Parameters for offering IT Services on GeM


Directorate General Supplies and Disposal (DGS&D) under the directions of the Central Government has developed an online platform Government e-Market place (GeM), to facilitate online procurement of common use Goods & Services required by various Government Departments / Organizations / PSUs. GeM would thus provide a common platform to buyers and sellers/service providers for Direct Selling and e-auctions.

While procurement of goods is very common, the Government wants to take steps for the provisioning of services (just like products) through GeM platform for the ease of government buyers.

An example of service that has already been provisioned on GeM is Taxi Service. Government Buyers can select from a list of attributes (referred to as Biddable Parameters) example: Hiring type (spot hiring, regular hiring, leasing) , Duration of hiring (Half day, full day, Monthly Yearly etc), Body Type( Sedan, Hatchback), Engine Capacity (800CC to 2500CC) etc. The service provider would provide rates for all these combinations and the buyer can compare the rates for different service providers before placing the final order. The same can be visited on

On the same lines, DGS&D is trying to draft some IT services:
1. Data Center Service
2. Cyber Security Service
3. Cloud Service

The draft SLA and Biddable parameters of which are now put up for public consultation. We would like to have inputs on the specific Terms and Conditions drafted for each service as well as Financial/Technical Biddable Parameters standardized for offering various Services on GeM.

I am having a genuine concern instead of a suggestion. Wherever we go we find messed up application forms, contradicting rules and regulations, and thanks to the intelligent Bureaucrats.
So GeM should be a user friendly and interactive platform.

It would be a nice initiative to involve startups which are growing as a part of make in India which corresponds to the growth of the country. Coming to service contracts lot of government projects are being handled by very big IT gaints like Tata Consultancy services. They are doing a good job in maintaining them but they have private customers too. So it would be helpful if we can encourage startups of India to support our government technical front which in term gives more jobs to rural youth
