Electronic Bidding

Due to a recent central government and local government E-Japan initiative, electronic bidding correspondence has become essential. Manual bidding on paper has become a thing of the past.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation and other central government ministries and agencies in Kanagawa Prefecture, Yokohama, Kawasaki, Chiba Prefecture, Chiba, Saitama, Saitama City, Okinawa Prefecture, etc have made the change.

This switch impacts major industries including business , construction, procurement, and many other services.

Planetworks Inc.’s JapanAid PC99 service provides electronic bidding core systems with electronic authentication services. We look forward to your inquiry.
