FG Moves Against Fraud In Procurements

Published

on


The Federal Government has introduced a price checker portal and e-procurement services to curb fraudulent and unethical conducts within the process of the procurement of non-customised goods in ministries, departments and agencies.

The head of efficiency unit of the federal ministry of finance, Mr Ojonimi Imaji, announced this during a two-day sensitisation programme on price checker and e-procurement organised to sensitise financial officers and top state government financial experts selected from north-west region held in Kano. The introduction of the portal is expected to make government business transactions more transparent.

During the programme, Imaji said the new services would cancel physical market. “It will eliminate wastage and leakage, and promote transparency and accountability in government spending, and the mechanism would also institutionalise standards and uniformity in public procurement.”

According to him, the sensitisation is to allow for replication of the scheme in all public institutions in the 36 states including the federal capital territory. He further, revealed that a template has been developed for the replication with a sole aim of promoting accountability.

He then appealed to state governments in the region to key into the initiative without domesticating it, arguing that this will enable the service to have a national outlook.

In his remarks, Kano State finance commissioner, Alhaji Aminu Dan’amu, said the sensitisation programme will benefit the nation’s public service and the state government will ensure that all the needed support to make the scheme work, is provided.
