Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research (JIPMER) has introduced online tenders for procurement of goods and services. The JIPMER e-procurement portal is an end-to-end solution to buy and sell products and services through an online tendering process. On the JIPMER e-tendering portal, processes such as vendor registration, tender announcement and corrigendum, processing of the tender form, opening of tenders, negotiation and awarding of tenders can be carried out in an efficient and a transparent manner. The JIPMER online tendering portal serves as a secure, online platform for both buyers and vendors to transact business.
Vendors are required to buy class 2 digital signature certificates to participate in the JIPMER e-procurement process. Tender-related documents have to be signed digitally. Bidders can get a username and password on the ‘Register me’ page of the portal. The registration charges are Rs. 500. Online payment can be made using a credit card, a debit card or internet banking. The payment can also be made by a demand draft issued in favour of K.S.E.D.C. Ltd, Bangalore.
Esign provides sify class 2 digital signature certificates in a Vasco digipass key (e-token). Sify class 2 DSC can be ordered online at the user’s convenience. The certificate will be delivered within seven working days. Buyers can contact our support team at email@example.com for any queries regarding sify digital signature certificates.
Class 2 DSC can be issued to both individuals and business personnel. The certificates are used to sign electronic documents digitally.
