Critique of The Legal Framework Governing The Resolution Of Public Procurement Dispites In Tanzania
Article by Daudi Francis Momburi
The procurement process is facing various challenges, some legally based and others arising from the application of the law. The disputes that arise from the procurement process are contentious and need review so that justice may be served where there is a wrong. The justice should be timely and must provide remedies within reasonable time since these are largely commercial transactions. The system faces a challenge where some instituted bodies and persons to handle procurement disputes also parties to the procurement process hence leading to doubts as to impartiality. There should therefore be a review of the laws to provide for bodies with quasi judicial powers to handle these disputes. These bodies should be completely disconnected from the procurement processes.
