“It is in this light that the BPP, as regulator of public purchases, decided to respond to the identified challenges.

“The goal is to bring them up to date with current international best practices while ensuring that national interests are well served, with the goal of national development,” he said.

Ahmadu, who was represented by Kuye, Director of Energy Infrastructure, BPP, said the ultimate goal was to ensure transparency and promote competition.

He said that other objectives included profitability and professionalism in the public sector procurement system and the disposition of public assets in accordance with world practices.

The BPP chief noted that a lot had happened in the procurement space, both locally and internationally, since the development of the existing tender documents, hence the urgent need for a review.

He said the process of reviewing existing procurement documents and developing new ones was activated by the hiring of a consultant with global experience to help drive the process forward.

“Draft procurement documents have been produced and shared with relevant stakeholders.

“The goal is to create an opportunity to obtain valuable information from all stakeholders in public procurement.

“We look forward to key interest clauses being discussed by stakeholders, synergizing various perspectives and incorporating them into the documents being reviewed and developed.”

He urged stakeholders to seize the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing procurement reform to ensure national development driven.

Earlier in his opening remarks, Alhaji Ishaq Yahaya, Director of Supervision and Compliance, had said that reviewing the nation’s procurement documents had become necessary in light of emerging challenges.

He said that the workshop would showcase what had been developed with a view to stimulating discussions among stakeholders.

“We expect stakeholders to point out the areas we haven’t covered and the areas we shouldn’t have inserted,” he said.

He stressed the need for Nigeria to address recruitment issues in the country to promote transparency and national growth.
