Angolan government prepares new public procurement system

28 November 2018

The Angolan government intends to set up a public procurement system to ensure that state funds are used in the best possible way, said on Tuesday in Luanda the Minister of State and Head of the Civil House of the President of the Republic.

Frederico Cardoso, who was speaking at the Eighth Annual Conference of the Strategic Institutions of Internal Control of the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (OECI-CPLP), added that the new procurement system is part of ongoing reforms in the model of implementation of the General State Budget (OGE).

This system will be accompanied by the decentralisation process of public contracts to be awarded by the entities and at the levels of responsibility required by law, according to Angolan state news agency Angop.

This conference, which is due to end on Thursday, is entitled “Control of the execution of public expenditure,” and the sessions are guided by the Inspector General of State Administration, Commissioner Sebastião Gunza. (macauhub)
