The North Western Province (NWP) of Sri Lanka has long been a hub of infrastructure development, thanks to the expertise of the NWP Engineering Department. Cyclomax International, a leader in IT solutions, partnered with the NWP Engineering Department in 2018 to develop a comprehensive open-source project aimed at transforming their supplier registration, procurement processes, project awarding, and more. This initiative marks a significant leap in the department’s operational efficiency and public transparency.

Empowering Engineering through Open-Source Technology

Established in 1989, the NWP Engineering Department serves as the premier engineering consultancy agency for construction, operations, and maintenance of buildings in the province. With a mission to provide top-tier consultancy services, the department leverages over two decades of experience in infrastructure development, making it a critical player in the region’s technical landscape.

Streamlining Operations with Advanced Solutions

Recognizing the need for modern, efficient processes, Cyclomax International developed an open-source system that automates several key functions within the NWP Engineering Department. The project, completed in 2018, introduced the following features::
