Special Note on Security of Bids

7.1

Security related functionality has been rigorously implemented in ETS in a multidimensional manner. Starting with 'Acceptance of Registration by the Service
Provider', provision for security has been made at various stages in Electronic
Tender's software. Specifically for Bid Submission, some security related aspects
are outlined below.

7.2

As part of the Electronic Encrypter functionality, the contents of both the


Electronic Forms and the Main-Bid are securely encrypted using a Pass-Phrase
created by the Bidder himself. Unlike a password, a Pass-Phrase can be a multiword sentence with spaces between words (eg I love this World). A Pass-Phrase is
easier to remember, and more difficult to break. It is recommended that a separate
Pass-Phrase be created for each Bid-Part. This method of bid-encryption does not

24

Class 5NGN tender (Section-5 Part A)

NWP-CFA, BSNL C.O., New Delhi

have the security and data-integrity related vulnerabilities which are inherent in etendering systems which use Public-Key of the specified officer of a Buyer
organization for bid-encryption. Bid-encryption in ETS is such that the Bids cannot
be decrypted before the Public Online Tender Opening Event (TOE), even if there is
connivance between the concerned tender-opening officers of the Buyer
organization and the personnel of e-tendering service provider.
7.3

Typically, Pass-Phrase of the Bid-Part to be opened during a particular Public


Online Tender Opening Event (TOE) is furnished online by each Bidder during the
TOE itself, when demanded by the concerned Tender Opening Officer.

7.4

It is important for the bidder to keep a safe record of his Pass-phrases. It is the
RESPONSIBILITY of the bidder to provide the CORRECT PASS-PHRASE for
decrypting his bid part. In case the bidder is unable to provide the correct passphrase during the TOE, it will not be possible to open his bid and as his bid will be
REJECTED (i.e. Archived Un-opened). Before rejection in such a situation, the
bidder will be given opportunity to himself enter the pass-phrase from his own office
or from BSNLs office if his representative is physically present there.

7.5

There is an additional protection with SSL Encryption during transit from the clientend computer of a Supplier organization to the e-tendering server/ portal.

Public Online Tender Opening Event (TOE)

8.1

ETS offers a unique facility for Public Online Tender Opening Event (TOE).
Tender Opening Officers as well as authorized representatives of Bidders can
attend the Public Online Tender Opening Event (TOE) from the comfort of their
offices. Alternatively, duly authorized representatives of Bidders (i.e. Supplier
organization) are requested to carry a Laptop with Wireless Internet Connectivity, if
they wish to come to BSNL office for the Public Online TOE.

8.2

Every legal requirement for a transparent and secure Public Online Tender
Opening Event (TOE) has been implemented on ETS.

8.3

As soon as a Bid is decrypted with the corresponding Pass-Phrase as submitted


online by the Bidder himself (during the TOE itself), salient points of the Bids are
simultaneously made available for downloading by all prospective Bidders. The
tedium of taking notes during a manual Tender Opening Event is therefore
replaced with this superior and convenient form of Public Online Tender Opening
Event (TOE).

8.4

ETS has a unique facility of Online Comparison Chart which is dynamically


updated as each online bid is opened. The format of the chart is based on inputs
provided by the Buyer for each Tender. The information in the Comparison Chart is
based on the data submitted by the Bidders. A detailed Technical and/ or Financial
Comparison Chart enhances Transparency. Detailed instructions are given on
relevant screens.

8.5

ETS has a unique facility of a detailed report titled Minutes of Online Tender
Opening Event (TOE) covering all important activities of Online Tender Opening
Event (TOE). This is available to all prospective Bidders for Viewing/
Downloading.

8.6

There are many more facilities and features on ETS. For a particular tender, the
screens viewed by a Supplier will depend upon the options selected/programmed
by the Purchaser for the relevant tender.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In case of internet related problem at a bidders end, especially


during critical events such as a short period before bid-submission deadline, during
online public tender opening event, during e-auction, it is the bidders responsibility to
have backup internet connections. In case there is a problem at the e-procurement/ e-

interfaces with the Network Elements is required to handle the proprietary
management interfaces. Element Manager converts the proprietary management
interfaces into open and standard management interfaces, so that a single NMS

network resources by the various subscribers; this is the basis for billing.

9.2.2. Service Assurance:It consist of following


(i)

Fault Management Support: It involves the monitoring of the network resources to


detect malfunction, preempt failures, and detect faults. After faults are discovered,
the operator must troubleshoot, repair, and restore the network as quickly as
possible. Fault management ensures that service remains available.

metrics that characterize the performance of the network resources over service
intervals. It also facilitates the visualization of trends that can indicate periodic or
gradual degradation of physical resources.

(iii)

Resource Utilization data Collection Support: It involves the collection of data on the
level of utilization of network resources assigned to subscribers. This data can be
used to determine whether the service product is appropriately matched to the
subscribers' usage characteristics. It can also be used to forecast demand and
suggest service upgrades before QoS suffers.

and/or delete data on lost or stolen devices. The connectivity could affect platforms if
adequate firewalls, IDPs are not strong. Therefore Vendors would provide
adequate firewall and IDPs with the supply of equipment.
