PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu says Government will shorten lengthy tendering procedures and introduce measures to significantly reduce wastage of funds through benchmarking of prices and works.

The President has also directed Secretary to the Cabinet Roland Msiska to include prudent management of public resources as one of the performance assessment criteria.
“To address the pricing of services procured by Government, we are revising the Zambia Public Procurement Act to enhance efficiency,” he said yesterday when he opened a seminar for ministers and controlling officers.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
