Tender Preparation Tool V5.0.1 and Java 8 Update 141 Dear EO ePPS User. Further to the implementation of an update to the ePPS Tender Preparation Tool (TPT) last Wednesday (19/07/2017), an update was also carried out by Oracle to their Java software (updating it to - Java 8 Update 141). With this update, an issue arose with all applications that make use of Java Web Start which incidentally the updated TPT makes use of, where an error message is displayed when run. This issue is being monitored by this Department and the System Developer. Until further notice, in order to make submissions, the offline TPT must be used. Kindly see the attached file for instructions on how to download and extract the TPT. Instructions are also available on how to download the Tender Structure and open it through the TPT. Please note that if Java is not updated to Java 8 Update 141, the online TPT will run normally. Any inconvenience is regretted.
