NCAA inaugurates 12-man committee on procurement

06 February 2014, 16:01

Ikeja - The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) on Thursday said it had inaugurated a 12-man procurement committee in conformity with section 21 of the Public Procurement Act 2007.

The Director General (DG) of the NCAA, Captain Fola Akinkuotu, disclosed this in Lagos.

He said that the committee would plan and implement the budget of the organisation.

Akinkuotu said that the budget was a key factor in the procurement process.

"There is need for us to centralise our expenses otherwise we will not know what we are spending for.

"The requisite to have statistics in whatever that is being purchased is paramount because it will help the organisation to manage its resources properly,'' he said.

Akinkuotu advised that the procurement department should follow due process in their transactions.

"So the issue of procurement should be taken seriously and anything that will uplift NCAA should be our common goal,'' he said.

He said that the committee`s functions would include the carrying out of market and statistical surveys to analyse the cost implications in conjunction with the appropriate unit in the organisation.

The DG said the its responsibility would also include integrating the authority`s procurement expenditure into the annual budget of the organisation.

Members of the committee include Akinkuotu as chairman and Raheem Ola, Bulus Musa, Ikwo Uloh, Olu Akinde and Head of the Procurement Unit, Barnabas Agochukwu.
