Welcome to the Gambia Public Procurement Authority (GPPA) New website. The Gambia Public Procurement Authority has been in existence since the enactment of the 2001 Procurement Act. This Act was then amended in 2014 inspired by the UNCITRAL Model Law for Public Procurement, and then into GPPA (Amendment) Act 2018 by repealing the major tender board into a modern state-of-the-art procurement law to ensure that our procurement law meets standards of international best practices.
With a state of the art Act comes the requirement of a similar website to ensure that the Authority’s mandate of improving the efficiency and transparency of the country’s Public Procurement system, enhance of the compliance of the national procurement system with international quality standards, creation of an independent Complaint Review Board(CRB) are all met. The new democratic dispensation comes with the need for improved public financial management and in as much as IMF’s presence signals an overall pass by the multilateral agencies; a proper and transparent procurement system is also generally seen as a good litmus test for good governance.
We look forward to working with all stakeholders for a transparent public procurement system.
