With the help of this system, all the projects are being monitored at the provincial level and a central dashboard has also been set up for this purpose.
This system has helped in providing equal opportunities to all the contractors registered with the Pakistan Engineering Council to take part in the tendering process, he added.
The online system has also eliminated paperwork and made business easier besides ensuring transparency. Now, a contractor can take part in the tendering process of a project from any part of the world, the official informed.
