Fiji Procurement Office called on organizations to build the capacity of procurement human resources to ensure efficient, effective, and corruption-free procurement at the Pacific Anti-Corruption Regional Conference.
The two-day conference, held at the Intercontinental Natadola Resort on July 27-28, 2023, was attended by government officials, experts, and stakeholders from across the Pacific region. The objective was to foster regional cooperation for addressing corruption towards good governance and sustainable development in the Pacific.
The Head of Procurement, Mr Saimoni Veramu spoke on mitigating the prevalence of corruption in public procurement. He stressed the importance of training public procurement professionals on the procurement process, the laws and regulations governing public procurement, and the risks of corruption. He also advised the conference that the Ministry of Finance through its Fiji Procurement Office is currently reviewing the Procurement Regulations to ensure it adjusts to current best practices and provides clarity where there is ambiguity. The review is currently being assisted through technical assistance from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
Veramu also highlighted that the Fiji Procurement Office has moved in leaps and bounds with the launch of the eTender portal in 2018 and the introduction of the evaluation toolset in January 2023. The introduction of electronic tenders has allowed the FPO to assess and analyse data and share this on its website.
Veramu concluded by calling on all organizations to work together to build a more transparent and accountable public procurement system in the Pacific.
