The Procurement Department

Our Role:

The Procurement Department at PU is mainly responsible for the planning and execution of all procurement and disposal requirements for the Project. This is done in accordance with the PPDA Act, Regulations and Guidelines as well as any other relevant international guidelines relevant to the requirements.

In addition, the Procurement Department offers advisory services to the other departments of the project, specifically those that handle PPP Projects and other privatization or divesture activities.
