Call for System Development: Contract Registration and Administration System

Ministry of Trade and Industry of Ethiopia

Bid No 010

Ministry of Trade and Industry (MoTI) is responsible for the expansion of trade and industry sectors through its key functions of trade governance, promotion, and industry development. MOTI’s mandate includes creating conducive conditions for the promotion and development of the country’s export trade as well as driving the country’s foreign trade relations and negotiations.

At MoTI, the Trade Promotion Sector is among the four sectors within the Ministry. Among the multiple Directorates under the Trade Promotion Sector– Export Promotion Directorate General renders various services, among which, ‘Contract Registration and Administration’ is one. This contract registration and administration process has been put in place starting October 2019 through a ‘Contract Registration and Administration Directive 21/2012’. The main function of the contract administration is to register an incoming contract on intranational trade (contract between exporters from ethiopia and importers abord) and administrating the execution of the contract. The service currently targets ECX trade agricultural commodities, specifically oilseed and pulse commodities. Since its inception phase, the Contract Registration service is provided on a simi digitalized system. Given the complicated nature of the export process, the customer journey has not been smooth with the simi digitalized system. Hence, MoTI has planned to fully automate/digitize the overall ‘Contract Registration and Administration’process from the front-desk up to the back end.

Therefore, MoTI welcomes interested IT firms or developers who are experienced in database development and big data management to participate in the bidding.
