The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Mr. Ekpo Nta, has said that a software package for electronic management of procurement developed by the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) has attracted international attention and subsequently adopted by Mexico and several other countries.
He made the disclosure when playing host to the Bureau of Public Procurement team led by the Acting Director-General of the Bureau, Engr. Ahmed, who was on a courtesy visit to the commission.
This was contained in a statement issued and signed by the Press Secretary of the Bureau and made available to Journalists in Abuja.
Nta acknowledged the bureau’s accomplishments, including its contributions to the nation’s economic development, but, however noted: “that one of the Bureau’s most important, but least appreciated, accomplishments is its pioneering application of technology, through its Public Procurement Review Software (go-PRS), to the management of the procurement system.”
