(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian government is planning incentives to encourage online submission to public procurement. In this wake, Ibrahim Talba Malla, the public procurement minister (minmap) just issued a list of about a hundred bids for online subscription via the “Cameroon Online E-procurement System” (Coleps) platform.
The minister says bidders will first register on the department’s site www.marchespublics.com and submit an electronic certificate. “The first hundred bidders before March 8, 2019, will get the electronic certificate for free,” Talba Malla offered.
The official stressed that the interested service providers should contact the information systems division of his ministry with certain administrative documents: a registration form duly completed and uploaded to Coleps, a copy of the commercial register, a copy of the non-bankruptcy order, a copy of the bank domiciliation, and a copy of the national identity card of the company's manager.
Monies for the implementation of the “Cameroon Online E-procurement System” was provided by South Korea, totalling XAF3 billion. The objective is to reduce corruption in the public procurement sector in Cameroon because it is often the contact between service providers and civil servants that leads to fraud. As proof, in its report published late 2018, the National Anti-Corruption Commission (Conac) ranked the Ministry of Public Procurement as the most corrupt administration in the country.
In 2017, 1,898 contracts were scheduled and 177 tender notices were published through the Coleps platform
