Government Yangon launches website, which unveiled tendering procedures
Yangon's regional government's Tender Board Committee has set up a website to make the government's bidding process more transparent, said U Zaw Aye Maung, regional minister for Rakhine Ethnic Affairs. This website will provide information on open to competition, from local to national, to inform the general population about its actions and to act as a countermeasure against nepotism and bribery.
"The website "The will list various calls for proposals and describe the procedure, the purpose, the interested persons and the timetable for completion. This website is only available in the Myanmar language," U Zaw Aye Maung said to Myanmar Business Today. This website is the NLD's response to criticism of the ubiquitous nepotism that dictates and influences the results of tendering procedures.
Pyapon shrimp merchant U Hla Baw said the NLD-led move to a more open tender procedure was a decisive move to restore public confidence in the state. "Transparency is a pillar of any administration, whether it' s democracy or not. The USDP Yangon regional administration has been criticized for failing transparency between the state and the public authorities and the state.
On the other hand, the NLD-led coalition has put openness at the centre of its agendas, said Yangon's Prime Minister U Phyo Min Thein.
The Yangon Territorial Goverment is expanding e-services to support the community.

YBS's various lines and busses that serve the lines were made available through its website yangon.gov.mm, said U Zaw Aye Maung, Yangon Region Secretary of Rakhine Ethnic Affairs.
"We want to help the general community find out through the e-government system what the federal administration is doing and what kind of service it provides, what tenders it is conducting and what cases are being debated in Hluttaw," he said at the Digital Transformation Submit, which took place at the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers and Industry (UMFCCI) on November 8.
"The Yangon website provides information on the conditions for extending or requesting a grant. You can also find out about calls for tender in the Yangon region," he said. The Yangon region began delivering e-services via its website in October 2013. The provincial governments website (yangon.gov.mm) provides a link to other sites of the administration, such as www.eyaong.gov.mm for obtaining park cards, or www.rtad.gov.mm, the website of the road traffic authority that offers on-line bookings for those who wish to take the driver's licence test.
Union Minister for Transport and Communications U Thant Sin Maung said there are still very few individuals who access the government's web sites. It added that it is important to check the administration of e-government processes and find more ways to boost the flow of information to the various governments' sites - stating that although the sites are useful and feature-rich if no one accesses them, they do not serve their intended use.
Myanmar has ranked 169 out of 193 states in the e-government index in the 13 years since the introduction of the e-government system in 2004, U Thant Sin Maung said.
