The finance minister, Guillermo Zúñiga "emphasized the transparency and effectiveness of the system because each of the framework agreements is done through public tenders and because you can choose what you need through an electronic catalog where suppliers and their products have already been analyzed."
Companies in the sector submitted their bids for the Framework Agreement on Computer Goods and Office Accessories for $16 million.
The struggle between the two main systems used for Costa Rican government purchases could end with Mer-Link being the winner.
The Board of Directors of Consejo Nacional de Vialidad has not yet authorized the agency to use the electronic procurement system Mer -Link .
The government of Costa Rica has still not been able to establish a single system for state purchases, while the battle continues between the individual interests of the supporters of each of the two systems currently in operation.
