An audit report of the Controller and Auditor General (CAG) has revealed widespread violations of public procurement law in Government and development partner funded projects in the fiscal year 2015/16.
The CAG Audit Report for Development Projects for FY 2015/16 cites the procurement of goods and services without tender board approval and procurement without competitive bidding among the irregularities that burdened implementation of projects funded jointly by the Government and development partners.
In the report, CAG attributes those irregularities to a weakness in two areas, namely procurement process and contract management.
“In my review of procurement process and contract management, I noted cases where nine councils procured goods and services worth TZS 268,983,449.30 from various suppliers without approval of tender boards,” the CAG writes.
Furthermore, while goods worth TZS 770,183,659 were procured without competitive price quotations, contrary to regulations, various amounts totaling TZS 182,563,943 were issued to staff to procure goods and or services instead of placing orders using Local Purchase Order (LPO), the report reveals.
“Procurement made through cash may impair fair pricing and quality of the procured goods and services,” noted the CAG.
Other violations occurred in 15 councils which procured goods and services worth TZS 159,600,568 from suppliers that were neither approved by the Government Service Procuring Agency (GPSA) nor their tender boards.
According to the report, the audited projects were Agricultural Sector Development Programme (ASDP), Health Basket Fund (HBF), Tanzania Social Action Fund (TASAF) and Water Sector Development Programme (WSDP).
