Masters Certificate in Public Procurement Management for Public Procurement Managers and Executives of the Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (ARMP) of Niger

The IDEA International Institute has been entrusted by the Ministry of Finance's Public Service Delivery Capacities and Performance Project (PCDS) with the mandate to continue the second phase of training for managers of the Regulatory Authority of Public Procurement (ARMP) and some directors of public procurement in Niger. Under the guidance of expert trainer Jimmy Bankamwabo, participants applied the results-based management (RBM) framework to simplify bureaucracy, optimize value for money and reduce delays between the placing of public orders and the receipt of acquisitions. In 2016, all participants had completed the first phase of training on the Management of the cycle of public procurement and contract administration module. Thus, at the end of the two modules, seventeen participants were able to successfully complete the certification and were awarded by Laval University the Higher University Certification in Cycle Management of Public Contracts diploma. We wish to congratulate them for their diligence and success, and we wish them the best of success in the ARMP and in their professional lives.
