Jitendra Kohli, B.Tech. (Electrical Engg) 1976 from IIT Delhi, is the founder and Managing Director of ElectronicTender.

Background :
He has been researching in the area of e-procurement/ e-tendering, with focus on public procurement, for over 14-years now. Based on his pioneering work, his company, ElectronicTender has developed an innovative e-procurement/ e-tendering/ e-auction software product, Electronic-Tendering Engine® (ETE), which comprehensively addresses the requirements of ‘public-procurement’ globally.
[Based on available information, the security and transparency related features of ETE are currently far ahead of any competing product in the world. Furthermore, the high degree of configurability inbuilt in ETE ensures that it can be readily used in compliance with the tendering policy and procedures of any country, without any customization of the software, as long as English is the accepted language of communication]

His work, 'e-Procurement Integrity Matrix' is a comprehensive treatise on 'security, transparency and accountability' issues in e-procurement for Government and Public-Sector organizations. This document has been adopted and published by a reputable civil society organization focused on bringing transparency in public-procurement, and is available in public-domain for the benefit of all concerned. The Government of India's 'guidelines for e-procurement' have taken inspiration from his writings on the security and transparency related aspects of e-procurement.

In end-2011/ 2012, his services were commissioned by the Asian Development Bank for technical peer-review of the update of MDB's ‘e-Procurement Toolkit’.

In the month of August 2012, he was invited to present a paper at the ‘International Public Procurement Conference (IPPC5)’ held at Seattle (USA). The paper titled ‘Red Flags in e-Procurement/ e-Tendering for Public Procurement and some Remedial Measures’ [URL: http://www.ippa.org/IPPC5/Proceedings/Part2/PAPER2-6.pdf ], was found to be eye-opener by delegates from many countries, including USA and EU. His participation at the European Commission’s Seminar on Electronic Procurement (Brussels, 14 December 2012) had a similar impact, and he was invited to make a presentation at the European Space Agency in Paris.

Earlier, as a Strategy & Management Consultant, he successfully handled major assignments for reputable international organizations like – Compaq, Apple, Mathys, Chase, Shearman & Sterling, et al; and prior to that as a senior Management Executive in the IT and Engineering Industry, he had extensive experience of Government Tendering.
