He continued to say that the meeting between NAPP and the visiting Gambian Public Procurement delegation was to exchange knowledge and best practices, while noting that the Gambians already have a system wherein all procurement professionals are certified and that this is how they would want to go as a professional association.

Mr. Kallon noted that Sierra Leone was far ahead of The Gambia insofar as the practice of procurement is concerned, noting that they were hopeful that at the end of the meeting they would sign an MOU with the Gambian Public Procurement Authority that would in future enhance knowledge exchange, training and other professional development.

The Gambian Public Procurement Authority, headed by the Chairman of the GPPA, arrived in the country over the weekend on a one week study tour.

The Director General of the GPPA, Abdoulie Tambedou, described the tour to Sierra Leone as a way of understanding good procurement practices within the ECOWAS member states.

The National Association of Public Procurement Authority, according to its interim President, was established largely because procurement officials have over the years been working solo, being fraught with huge challenges and mixed results, apparently due to little or no team work.

The formation of the organization, he continued, was to foster and strengthen collaboration, coordination, cooperation, communication and consultation among other procurement professionals in a more organized fashion.

The objectives for the formation of the NAPP, amongst others, was to ensure the observance of high ethical standards aimed at upholding the dignity of the profession in the country, enhance, develop and harmonize the procurement profession in the interest of public, private, non-governmental and international non-governmental organizations in Sierra Leone.
