Who We Are
“ ACBF was established by African Governments and their Development Partners to help build sustainable human and institutional capacity for good governance and development management. ”

ACBF Grantees Procurement

The mandate of the African Capacity Building Foundation to ensure that procurement in projects and programs financed by the ACBF is conducted in accordance with the provisions of the grant agreement, which require that grant proceeds are used only for the purposes for which the grant, is provided. As part of the fiduciary oversight role played by the Foundation to its grantees, proper attention is paid to economy and efficiency in the procurement processes of these grantees. Accordingly, the Foundation requires that the most open competitive procedures for procurement of goods, works and services be used by the projects in implementing procurement activities. The procurement procedures should give fair and equal opportunity to contractors, suppliers and consultants. Transparency is also essential in the procurement process.

To ensure that procurement is carried out in accordance to these principles as well as procurement international best practices, the Foundation has developed Procurement Guidelines for ACBF grant recipients and sub-grantees, which govern ACBF financed procurement. Further the Foundation has, in line with the requirements of the Multilateral Development Banks, also developed Standard Bidding Documents that should be used by the grantees. As the expenditure through public contracts is a sizeable portion of the grantees expenditure, increased efficiency, fairness, transparency and equal opportunity are strategically critical for achieving the project’s goals and objectives.
