Through greater use of information technology (IT), the Government of Malaysia hopes to create an efficient administration providing better and faster service to the people, thus bringing a distinctive change from the traditional practice. Electronic Government will improve both on how government operates internally as well as how it delivers services to the people of Malaysia. Thus, to realize this vision, it requires a comprehensive development and implementative programmes, which cover all aspects of government activities. Five pilot applications for electronic government have been prioritized, and one of them is the Electronic Procurement. E-procurement aims to reengineer, automate and transform the current procurement system by delivering cost savings and a faster turnaround time by enabling the government to become a “Smart Buyer”.
