Gambia Public Procurement Authority (GPPA) Director General have suggested that 70% of Gambia government budget should be done through public procurement, saying public procurement reforms are one of the pillars that need to be nurtured in the country’s new democracy.

During the visit to his office by the Kanifing Municipal Council (KMC) Mayor and team, Abdoulie Tambedou said the visit shows KMC’s readiness to respect procurement regulations and to ensure the contract between KMC and GPPA is respected.

Mr Tambedou said his Municipal Council population’s respect of public procurement regulations will assist in the delivery of roads, schools, markets, sanitation and waste management.

Mayor Ahmed Bensouda said GPPA understands the value of equality they play in coordinating institutions and tax payers.
