Ease of Doing Business

Introduction:

In order to ensure transparency, fairness and efficiency in procurement/ tendering processes, a Working Group under the Chairman of Additional Secretary, P&NG was formed. The Working Group suggested 50 recommendations in its report, “Enhancing efficiency and transparency in procurement of Oil Public Sector Undertakings" to enhance transparency and efficiency in Procurement/ tendering processes.

Enhancing Efficiency and Transparency in procurement process:

Oil and Gas PSUs (OPSUs) under MoP&NG have been directed to consider incorporation of relaxation of Past Track Record (PTR) norms subject to meeting the quality and technical specifications (except procurement of items related to public safety, health, critical security operations and equipments etc.) to all Startups (whether MSEs or otherwise) in their procurementmanuals.

OPSUs have been directed to utilize web portal www.msmedatabank.in, which is a common platform for engaging with MSE vendors.

OPSUs have been advised to adopt Combined Quality and Cost Based Selection (QCBS) system in services where quality is critical and/ or where services are of specialized nature and specification/ scope of services cannot be drawn objectively to eliminate sub-standard services. Some services have also been identified by the OPSUs where QCBS is proposed.

OPSUs were directed to consider establishing a central cost estimation cell at their organization level to create sound and robust estimations.

The report suggested 30 recommendations covering the tendering clauses with OPSUs as enablers, many of which have been implemented by the OPSUs.
