Procurement Planning workshops have commenced

The APC Committee Secretariat has commenced a series of presentations over the six weeks to generate awareness of the mandatory requirement to complete Procurement Plans. A total of 59 agencies have been invited to attend a presentation.

Procurement Plans developed for the 2020 budget year will be the first year of its use under the National Procurement Act. All public bodies and statutory authorities at National and Sub-National level are required to submit a procurement plan prior to commencing any procurement with the National Procurement Commission. No procurement can commence unless certified to commence from an approved procurement plan.

Public and statutory bodies need to start looking at putting one in place soon after the announcement of the National Budget 2020 (for appropriation agencies) or once the Budget has been approved for the agency.

The presentation delivered at these meetings has been made available under publications on this website.
