III. Strengthening of public procurement’s regulatory framework
New measures were introduced to the regulatory framework of public procurement to facilitate access for
higher tolerance levels for the awarding, validation and approval of public contracts ;
introduction of a quota system to keep certain contracts to SME ;
simplified requirements and documentation validity ;
introduction of a preference quota for local suppliers ;
lowering of the temporary bonding fees.
As of late September 2015, budget implementation shows a 30.5% increase in value of public procurement
spending, versus 19.7% as of late June 2015.
The average awarding lead-time by late September 2015 was 110.6 days versus 95.9 days in the second
quarter and 112.1 days as of late September 2014.
This performance must be improved, especially through better communication of the new regulatory
framework, the use of management tools and sustained efforts to raise stakeholders’ capabilities.
Together, those efforts should further ease the public procurement process, improve adherence to approved
lead-times, and reduce the number of over-the-counter contracts.
