GPPA PROCESSING FEE

PRESS RELEASE

 

GPPA PROCESSING FEE

 

Since May 2015, the Authority was granted approval by the Office of the  President  to levy a one percent (1%)  charge on the Procurement Budget of all Procuring Organisations (POs).

 

As a fully financially independent Authority which is no longer subvented by Government, it is imperative that all procuring entities pay this 1% Processing fee to GPPA.

 

In its efforts to enforce these payments, all Procuring entities are hereby tasked to take note that effective 15th March 2016, the Authority shall not process any submissions from POs that have neither paid their 1% Processing Fee nor entered into a payment plan with GPPA.

 

Procuring entities are therefore advised to heed this warning to avoid any inconvenience to their operations.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

 

Procuring Organisations are also reminded that henceforth, the yearly review of their Organisations shall include a variable for payment of the 1% Processing fee which carries a score of eight (8) points.
