Public contracts

In order to make public contracts transparent, Cameroon adopted in June 2000 a new regulation of public contracts. The most salient points are the following:

  • The fractioning of public contracts is forbidden. Authors of established markets in violation of this regulation are likely to be sanctioned;
  • An independent observer recruited by a call for tender by the authority in charge of public contracts must participate in the sessions of the commissions for the market and sub commissions of analysis;
  • A consultancy of international renown must realise later, Audits covering ail markets greater than CFA 500 million, and 25% of markets included between CFA 30 Million and 500 Million, chosen randomly;
  • Every public order must be subject to a large consultation of eventual service providers through the competition procedure.
