May 1, 2013  |  Asia, E-procurement

Malaysia’s government electronic procurement (e-procurement) portal, ePerolehan, is targeting to support transactions totaling 17 billion ringgit (US$5.3 billion) in 2013, up from 15.4 billion ringgit (US$4.8 billion) last year.

The ePerolehan portal made its debut in 2000, and is one of various e-government applications regulated by the Malaysian Finance Ministry to support procurement activities online. A new ePerolehan system is being built and will be launched in 2015.

The use of this system is at 75 percent, compared to just 10 percent in the year of introduction. The government was targeting an adoption rate of 90 percent for ePerolehan in two year’s time. A 100 percent adoption rate could not be reached as not all government procurement could be processed through the portal. This is due to factors such as security, defense, and strategy.
