GeM is a short form of one stop Government e-Market Place hosted by DGS&D where common user goods and services can be procured. GeM is dynamic, self sustaining and user friendly portal for making procurement by Government officers. ... The portal was launched on 9th August 2016 by the Commerce & Industry Minister.
Not adhering to the need of updating the payment status on the GeM portal has resulted in many CSIR Labs/Instts being treated as a red buyer thereby conveying to all the prospective sellers that the buyer rating is poor
GeM aims to enhance transparency, efficiency and speed in public procurement. It provides the tools of e-bidding, reverse e-auction and demand aggregation to help governments achieve the best value for their money and hence, use taxpayers' money efficiently.
