What are the major challenges in implementing the statutory requirement for qualification to tender and advertisement of tenders at state and federal levels in Nigeria? Some will identify reluctance amongst officials to improve transparency as required and the desire to limit opportunities to a select few, others will point to the push to introduce local content at state and in some cases at the federal levels, some will point to poor record keeping practices that frustrate related due diligence or high cost of advertisements. Despite these complaints we can see that more tenders are advertised today, than at any other time in our countries history. However the greater challenge may lie in the content of some of the advertisements and the conditions specified for qualification, which sometimes miss critical competence conditions. Also the extent of their eventual application in selection decisions, even when adequately specified is sometimes a challenge. In some cases conditions specified are only statutory or so general that it is no longer easy to weed the wheat from the chaff, in fewer cases, there are claims that a few processes may be skewed against and in favor of someone, which of these for you may the greater challenge?
