NDDC partners BPP on procurement reforms
The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has disclosed that it is partnering the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) to train management and procurement liaison officers on ways to reform the commission’s procurement processes.
Sole Administrator of NDDC, Efiong Akwa, stated this at a two-day workshop on Public Procurement Reform in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, adding that the training would arm them with the comprehensive principles of public procurement.
“The workshop is the first necessary step to redirect our procurement processes and ensure compliance, transparency and better service delivery,” he said.
He expressed confidence that required reforms in the NDDC would be achieved when management and liaison officers involved in public procurement applied the right principles in their departments.
Akwa said besides deepening collaboration with the BPP, the workshop would rekindle stakeholders’ confidence because it signified concerted efforts at improving the commission’s procurement practices.
On his part, Director of Procurement at the NDDC, Ndudi Enebeli, said the workshop was a platform for renewed effort at sanitising the commission’s procurement processes, adding that the training would help the directors and other officers to ensure that due process was followed in all public procurements at the commission.
