GeM portal and its Importance

GeM, which stands for Government e-Marketplace, is an online platform created by the Government of India for the procurement of goods and services by various government organizations. It is an end-to-end marketplace that facilitates the procurement process from product selection to payment, and enables transparency and efficiency in the procurement process.

The platform is designed to provide a single-window access to various procurement needs of government departments, organizations, and public sector undertakings. It also aims to promote the concept of “Make in India” and support small and medium-sized enterprises by providing them with a level playing field. Furthermore, in GeM 4.0, authorities have provided new methods of procurement for low-tier buyers to promote economic activities more frequently and easily.

In short, GeM is a one-stop shop for government procurement that is transparent, efficient, and supports the growth of small businesses.

What is Push button Procurement PBP on GeM Portal?

The government e-Marketplace (GeM) has introduced PBP, or push-button procurement, to make it easier for small buyers to purchase goods and services. Under PBP, buyers can initiate procurement for products below the L1 bidding price. The goal of GeM is to give small businesses the same opportunities as large businesses to conduct business through the government e-Marketplace and to make procurement easier for infrequent buyers. Buyers can now create PBP notifications for L1 purchases of up to 5 lakh rupees.

How to use Push button procurement

  • Buyers can create a PBP Notice for Level 1 acquisitions (Comparison and Purchase for amounts up to Rs. 500,000).
  • Sellers have 3 days from the publication of the PBP Notice to submit their bids/offers.
  • After 3 days, buyers can view the PBP Demand submitted by sellers.
  • Buyers can verify if the request has been either canceled or approved.
  • For an order to be created, there must be a minimum of five participants (two Original Equipment Manufacturers and three Resellers) involved in the PBP process.
  • If there are less than 3 participations, the Push button procurement demand will not be created.
