Etenders site issues

THE Government's revamped etenders website has prompted many complaints from unhappy users following its relaunch.

The redesigned site, etenders.gov.ie, unveiled by Minister of State for Public Service Reform Brian Hayes is intended to streamline public procurement.

However, dozens of users posted complaints online complaining about the site's slow speed and general poor functionality.

But the National Procurement Service defended the revamp, saying the site was experiencing a "huge volume of traffic" which may have caused delays.
