"Services and Software Projects" Held in Abeyance for Offsets

We need to pragmatically device ways to curb/control corruption in contracts, and  in offset projects alike. Type of software projects that could fall in the ambit of offsets and right valuation aspects of such projects could be rationalized. Certain software projects in which there are many stakeholders, and the projects which as standalone do not make a business proposition but benefit the Indian Defence Industry as a whole including making processes efficient and transparent, could be a fit case as offset projects. 

Valuation of the projects could be done diligently to avoid over-pricing.

Answer to 'overweight' is NOT to stop eating but having a diet that is 'healthy enough to make one live decently yet reduce weight' --- a sermon worth attempting in offset projects too.

Offset Fulfillment - The Right Way!

Obligors see offsets fulfillment against their contracts as yet another business opportunity. They would therefore invest in only such projects that are profitable ultimately, of course earning offset credits for the obligors in the process.

‘Mapping’ of offset recipients by the Obligors, or their designated agencies is a tedious process. It is here that ‘Global Offset Services Providers’ approved/empanelled by the Vendors play an important role in due diligence, ToT, training, consulting, etc, of the Offset Recipient Companies.

Online and Offline Services are needed for successful implementation of Offsets.

We provide the complete services in co-operation with our international JVs.

Industrial Co-operation and Offsets Facilitation Portal

In order to develop Industrial Co-operation and discharge offsets in various segments, database relevant to Offsets and Information System, detailing capabilities of various A & D in-country Companies is needed. This would help many professionals in major A & D Companies and other stakeholders access the details conveniently from their place of work before off-line discussions commence.

Effort of Svipja Technologies is to create such a database and info system on www.IndianDefenceIndustry.com   / www.FreeMarketsDefence.com   for India, and integrate it with global platform(s) relevant to A & D Supply Chains.

We urge A & D Companies to Register on these Sites and take advantage of the facilities/contents on the e-Hub including its proprietary transactional Marketing Engine for Buying/Selling/Purchases/Exports, Exhibition Gallery, What's New, etc.
