Public procurement in Angola will be electronic from June

3 April 2017

Angola’s Ministry of Finance plans to launch an electronic procurement platform in June, “an instrument that will promote good practices related to public expenditure,” a ministry official told Angolan news agency Angop.

Saidy Fernando, head of the Research Department and Institutional Relations of the National Public Procurement Service (SNCP), said he hoped that all procedures would be carried out through this electronic platform, allowing any applicant to follow the whole process up to the end of the contract.

This process will also replace the paper-based process and cut red tape, allowing for more agility, transparency and savings to the state coffers, said the Ministry of Finance official.

The reform of the public procurement system in Angola has the support of the African Development Bank through the Project to Support Finance Management. (macauhub)
