The total value of tenders in IT sector rose by ca. 30% in Q1 2017 when compared to Q1 2016, according to Pressinfo.pl. In Q1 2017, 2,483 tendersdirectly related to the IT industry were settled, over a half of them in January. Their overall value reached PLN 1.28bn (€300.6m). It means a growth compared to Q1 2016 when the value of 2,907 procurements amounted to PLN 984m (€231.9m).
