About the Authors
  • Public procurement regulation in Africa is not widely researched. To address the shortage of scholarship in this area and to promote future research, this book analyses the law governing public procurement in a number of African systems and looks at key themes relevant to all African states. Part I discusses the regulatory regimes of nine African systems using a common framework, providing both a focused view of these African systems and an accessible comparative perspective. In Part II, key regulatory issues in public procurement that are particularly relevant in the African context are assessed through a comparative approach. The chapters consider the influence of international regulatory regimes (particularly the UNCITRAL Model Law on procurement) on African systems and provide insights into the way public procurement regulation is approached in Africa.

    • Provides academics, students and practitioners with easy access to core information on procurement regulation in Africa that is not readily available
    • Analyses key issues from a comparative and critical perspective, thereby enabling those involved in studying and operating public procurement rules in Africa to learn from the experiences of other African countries
    • Compares regulatory rules in Africa against international standards such as those of the UNCITRAL Model Law, thus providing policy makers with the information and tools needed to ensure the sound future development of regulatory rules in African countries
