A project which is being implemented in 28 selected councils deemed to have had a relatively low level of procurement performance has registered marked success in many areas of procurement, TPJ has learnt.
PPRA Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Laurent Shirima, who is chairman of the joint local partners committee of the project said this at their meeting held recently in Dar es Salaam.
The Enhancement of Procurement Capacity of Local Government Authorities Project (EPC-LGAP), is jointly implemented in Pwani, Dodoma, Kigoma and Tanga regions by PPRA, President’s Office - Regional Administration and Local Governments (PO-RALG) and Belgian Technical Cooperation (BTC).
Dr. Shirima said that the project has enabled development of procurement tools including training modules, manuals and has improved compliance level of those councils.
"We have observed positive outcomes of this project but it covered only 15 percent of the councils... you can imagine the huge amount of money that the Government would save if it covered the whole country, " said Dr. Shirima.
Project co-manager, Mr. Fritz Raijmakers, said the project has improved average performance and compliance of the selected councils from 54 to 69 per cent with the average progress in performance of 25.8 per cent, while value for money average has improved from 69 to 76 per cent.
“Priority areas for project support were contract management, procurement record keeping, use of PPRA systems and closure of procurement contracts,” said Mr. Raijmakers.
The project, which comes to an end this week, was a five-year intervention (2012-2017) whereby its aim was to sustainably enhance the procurement capacity at local government level, which as a result, increased procurement compliance and performance and more efficient and effective service delivery by local governments.
Partners for this project, which started in 2012, are BTC and Public Financial Management Reform Programme (PFMRP).
