A distributed model for sharing tendering project information in the South African local government

This study proposes a distributed model that can be used by the South African local government to securely and efficiently share tendering project information with all the parties that have an interest in the project. The proposed model aims to eliminate the use of reports, meetings, presentations and site visits as project information sharing mechanisms with entities that fall within the South African local government.

Additionally, the proposed model seeks to promote the need to share project information and eliminate issues related to a single point of failure or having an organisation that has central powers over project information. The proposed model can also be used to foster collaboration between the public and private sectors by becoming an essential tool that can be used to securely share project information without colluding.

The proposed model also incorporates the benefits and promises that come with the adoption of distributed ledger technology as a technology solution.
