The note highlights the importance of Law 244 as the fruit of four years of national commitment and concerted efforts with the international community to progress against all odds, and as a policy instrument to fight corruption in public procurement and instill professional practices aligned with international norms.
It details the risks entailed by the amendments brought to Law 244 by the Parliament on April 18, 2023. Some of the voted amendments come in contradiction with the 8 principles based on which the Law was designed; the latter being derived from the OECD 12 principles on good public procurement.
The note is prepared by the Secretariat of the Inter-ministerial Committee in charge of following up on the public procurement reform.
