    The portal contains information (Project title, contractor, sum, funding source, completion period, status and items) on COVID-19 emergency procurements by the Ministry of Interior, Federal Ministry of Health and Federal Ministry of Environment.

    All other information on health procurement were published within the period under review but for contract procurements from 2016 to 2019.

    The Bureau for Public Procurement has released specific guidelines for procurement on Covid19 tenders, and directs the bidders to the NOCOPO platforms, to upload their applications. NOCOPO is Nigeria's official public procurement site. The commitment has been switched from complete to ongoing because the online procurement platform often experiences technical issues (e.g. it was down in the month of April this year) so we wanted to continue assessing every 6-months to ensure it is kept functioning.This requires to be addressed for this website to be a working platform effective and useful enough for government departments to upload the required data and for citizens and companies to be able to access it.
