Corruption in public procurement

Government and state-owned enterprises need to purchase goods and services in order to carry out their duties and responsibilities. This process of public procurement must be effective and corruption-free in order to drive economic growth and development.

Government is working to:

  • Ensure more transparency with procurement so that taxpayers know what their money is being spent on
  • Uncover unlawful activities in procurement and take strong action against those responsible
