(Business in Cameroon) - Abba Sadou, Cameroon’s minister of public procurements, has signed a circular asking the various managers of public assets to ensure that all public procurement contracts for 2018 are awarded latest by the end of April. This was revealed by Cyrille Edou Alo’o, director-general for the budget at the ministry of finance.

This main goal of this measure is to guarantee the proper implementation of the public investment budget whose implementation rate is, most of the times, far below expectations on many projects.  

Experts and various authorities have often attributed the low performances to slow administrative procedures, during contract-awarding processes. A trend which the government wishes to reverse by initiating the procedures early.
