Collaborative Framework between PPDA, PDEs and CSOs to enhance Public Procurement outcomes and service delivery

Considering that some CSOs are mandated to enhance accountability, transparency and advocacy, among others, engaging CSOs in monitoring of public procurement and disposal of public assets is anticipated to contribute to improved accountability and transparency for better service delivery. This close collaboration could facilitate popularization and proper understanding and implementation of the PPDA Law would go a long way in promoting principles of good governance, effective service delivery and above all increase citizens awareness on public procurement which in turn enables them to monitor procurement processes, detect cases of corruption and accordingly report to the relevant authorities on such cases. The Authority recognizes the fact that CSOs collectively have a very wide presence across the country hence would provide a practical and productive mechanism for increasing PPDA’s reach in monitoring public procurement processes. The Authority therefore intends to engage CSOs to play an oversight role of monitoring procurement activities.

The purpose of this framework is to make provisions for cooperation mechanisms between PPDA, PDEs and CSOs interested in public procurement contract monitoring so as to improve performance of public procurement contracts and citizen participation.
