Public Procurement in Zambia: A Commentary on the Law and Practice
Since the enactment of The Public Procurement Act No. 12 of 2008, scholarly analyses and evaluations
of its contents, institutional mechanisms and underlying policy objectives are conspicuously absent. This
seminal article on the subject seeks to outline and discuss the institutional and legal framework for the
public procurement system and practice in Zambia. Thus, government agencies, procurement officers,
anti-corruption institutions, policy-makers, scholars, students, judges and lawyers in Zambia will find
this article most invaluable for practice.
