Indonesia Revamps eCatalogue Procurement System

Indonesia Announces Open Enrollment for eCatalogue Procurement System

On April 7th the Ministry of Health announced a new eCatalogue open enrollment policy whereby manufacturers can submit new applications year round. Applications are now accepted upon submission with on-line publication the same or next day. There’s no advanced verification of application documents but application documents are subject to review post publication, and subject to de-listings if anything is found to be incorrect.

A major rework of the eCatalogue system was just implemented in February of 2022 (see associated article here). While the software platform itself seems to be struggling to keep up with increased demand for new listings with frequent “suspension of service” reports, the Ministry of Health has been tweaking the enrollment policies. The latest being the third and most liberal in the past 8 weeks.
