Government e-Marketplace (GeM): Driving Public Procurement towards Minimum Government and Maximum Governance

Case Authors
About GeM

The Government e-Marketplace (GeM) is an online platform launched by the Government of India to facilitate procurement of goods and services by various government departments, organizations, and public sector undertakings. Launched in 2016, GeM aims to bring transparency, efficiency, and speed in the government procurement process. It provides a one-stop platform for procurement of common use goods and services, eliminating the need for multiple vendor registrations. GeM also promotes inclusiveness by encouraging participation from small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and startups, thus supporting the government’s vision of promoting ease of doing business and fostering economic growth.

GeM has signed MoUs with almost all the state governments. The integration of other available public procurement platforms with GeM is also underway. Though all processes of these platforms may not be feasible to integrate, the best practices that align with the three founding principles of GeM will be integrated. In the future, this could lead to a unified procurement portal for public procurement. Deep integration will require integrating the systems at various stages of procurement.
