Public Procurement Law, which Bauchi state took the lead among states in domestication after the federal government, is being reviewed to structurally make the procurement units established under it to align with the peculiarities of the state.
According to the Due Process Office, the review of the law now undergoing legislation, which would in due course be passed by the state House of Assembly, could not adversely alter the contents of the law.
Head of Administration and Finance in the Bauchi Due Process Office, Barr. Umar Mohammed Sani, who dropped the hint of the law review, explained that it all has got to do with the structures of the procurement units in the state.
Sani was speaking yesterday when he received in audience members of the Bauchi state Coalition for the Improvement of Public Expenditure Management (BACIPEM) led by the Centre for Information Technology & Development (CITAD) Programme Officer, Malam Isa Garba.
Garba and his team were at the Due Process Office to keep abreast of the progress and or likely changes in public expenditure procurements and how efficient such are being carried out, as well as any improvement in the contents of the law.
“The Public Procurement Law is being reviewed but it has not been passed, it has got to do with the structures of the procurement entities but has not affected the contents of the law”, Sani said.
