The African Union Commission (AUC) has received funding by the International Development Association (IDA) to modernize its procurement planning, sourcing and contract management systems within AUC and AU entities. Through an international competition, the AUC assigned to EUROPEAN DYNAMICS (ED) the implementation of an e-Procurement System to enhance the Commission’s capacity in undertaking procurement processes for goods, works and services, consultancy services and non-consultancy services efficiently. The System will also improve information sharing of the Commission by supporting suppliers to identify opportunities and participate in tenders at lower cost. The solution is based on ED’s ePPS family of procurement products and services.
The project is structured into three phases, namely Situation Analysis & Consensus Building, Building e-Procurement Foundation and Implementation/Support.
The system was launched in 2021 and is currently being operated, maintained and supported under the SaaS model for the next 5 years.
