It is a one-stop solution for all Central Government and State Government Ministries, Departments, Public Sector Units (PSUs) and affiliated bodies to facilitate easy procurement of consumer goods and services.
Scope of operation for the GeM Platform:
There are three facets to defining the scope of operations for the GeM platform:
1. Who are the customers (both buyers and sellers) that the GeM platform will cater to?
Ans: GeM aims to replicate the offline market on its online platform to create an open market that brings together sellers across the board ranging from established brands to MSEs, individual suppliers, suppliers of innovative products and services, and artisans.
2. What will be the goods and services offered on the GeM platform?
Ans: The spectrum of goods and services procured by the Government is very wide. The goods procured by the Government range from highly standardized goods like A4 printing paper, printer cartridges, and electronic goods like printers and laptops to highly specialized goods like drilling equipment and medical equipment. Similarly, for services, the spectrum ranges from standard services such as security services, chauffeur services, and gardening services to a more complex set of specialized services such as consulting services and engineering services.
3. How shall the GeM platform operate to execute the aforementioned ‘Who’ and ‘What’?
