Abstract

This paper assesses the role of the Contractor-General in public procurement and the utility of the office in the anticorruption project. The author also examine other initiatives such as anticorruption clauses in procurement contracts, codes of ethics, declaration of assets by public servants, anticorruption agencies, the Contacts Commission and the Central Tenders Board. The article concludes that although anticorruption agencies, such as the office of the Contractor-General, depend on the government of the day for supply, such institutions still offer some useful instructions on public procurement oversight.

Keywords: contractor-general, public procurement, corruption, anticorruption, anticorruption clauses, procurement, contracts, codes of ethics, declaration of assets, public servants, anticorruption agencies, Contacts Commission, Central Tenders Board
