ACBF Corporate Procurement

The African Capacity Building Foundation procures quality goods and services for its own institutional use. ACBF procures its requirements at competitive market prices using the most appropriate procurement methods as determined by the estimated value and/or nature of goods and services being procured in the most economic  and efficient way. ACBF Procurement draws its experience and support from multilateral development banks (MDBs), and its key development partners. ACBF continues to ensure that its Procurement systems and processes are consistent and adapted to reflect what is considered “international best practices in Procurement”. The ACBF’s procurement policies and procedures are designed to promote fairness and equal treatment of vendors.
