    S.Korean Gov’t Tagging All Supplies, Equipment
    The
    Public Procurement Service (PPS) will introduce a radio frequency
    identification (RFID) product code system this year to all government
    agencies for the efficient management of their office supplies and
    equipment one year ahead of the original schedule.

    The PPS plans
    to finish the project by December after selecting a program provider by
    June and with a budget of W18 billion (US$14.5 million). Once
    completed, the project will create more than 2,810 new jobs and the new
    product code management system will save the government a total of
    W75.2 billion (US$60.6 million).

    If the system is built, RFID
    tags will be put on about 8.7 million pieces of government office
    supplies and equipment this year. All processes of acquisition,
    storage, inventory and disposal of government office supplies and
    equipment will be electronically handled through a ubiquitous sensor
    network RFID (USN/RFID) module system. The new system is expected to
    prevent the unnecessary waste of government money, which has been in
    some cases overspent due to lack of accurate inventory services.

    The
    new system will use an intelligent and wireless USN/RFID module system.
    It consists of electronic tags, readers, middleware, and an applied
    service platform.The new system will also galvanize the resource
    recycling and waste treatment industry, as it will be possible to make
    an inventory of government office supplies and equipment in real time.
    PPS will seek revision of relevant law in order to boost the RFID
    industry as well.
