The Public Procurement Technical Assistance Project (PTAP) will enable the Bank to deliver its knowledge management and advisory services. This is a MIC Grant of UA 90,000 to the Government of the Republic of Angola. The proposed technical assistance will also help to address public procurement challenges that have hampered the overall performance of the Bank’s portfolio. The Bank’s Country Fiduciary Risk Assessment (CFRA) of Angola conducted in 2019 recorded a Fiduciary Risk Rating of Substantial for Procurement in Angola. The CFRA reported that despite marked progress, there were still significant gaps that could affect the quality, efficiency, effectiveness and equity of procurement outcomes. This technical assistance is aligned with the Bank’s Country Strategy Paper (CSP) 2017-2021 for Angola where governance, capacity building and advisory services are identified as enablers across cutting interventions. The TA will help attain the CSP’s strategic objectives by supporting economic governance and reducing fiduciary risk. It complements the ongoing budget support operation i.e. the Economic Diversification Support Program (EDSP) by contributing to the mitigation of key fiduciary risks as identified by the Country Fiduciary Risk Assessment (CFRA) report and improving the delivery of reform priorities supported under the operation. In addition, the TA will complement the PEFA assessment planned in 2021 and inform the design of the Financial Management Support Project II (PAGEF II) which is planned for 2021.
The overarching development objective of the Project is to support the development of a transparent, effective and accountable public procurement systems through strengthening the capacity of institutions in charge of public procurement. The purpose is to assess the institutional, organizational and human resources capacity in public procurement and inform future reforms and capacity building interventions. The provision of technical assistance and advisory services will contribute to addressing some of the weaknesses identified in the Country Strategy Paper 2017 – 2021 such as weak public financial and procurement management systems and capacity.
The project will provide targeted technical assistance and knowledge management support to the Public Procurement Authority to (a) deliver its mandate of ensuring efficient, effective, transparency and accountable public procurement systems and practices across National, Provincial and Municipality levels; and (b) undertake selected analytical work to inform legal and institutional reforms and capacity building of procurement professionals.
