The Ministry of Railways has directed the Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) to provide access to view finalised Tender Committee Proceedings (TCPs) in pdf format with log-counts to Senior Deputy General Managers (SDGMs) of all Zones without any further delegation. The directive has been issued to enable Preventive Checks/Investigation of specific complaints on e-tenders by the Vigilance Department. While all the documents pertaining to tendering including finalised TCPs are available in digital form in IREPS (Indian Railways e-Procurement System), access to view finalised TCPs was not available to vigilance officials. The Ministry has requested CRIS to take necessary action and submit a compliance report within a month.
