It said the new office will also promote prudence, transparency and accountability in  government spending, particularly  in the procurement of goods and services.

“In addition, the new office will promote professionalism in the execution of the procurement functions and streamline quality control practices.

“The Due Process Office will also promote competition and transparency in project procurement leading to low and efficient cost of projects.

“It will also ensure proper project packaging and definition by prioritizing and recording and  ensuring proper synchronization among the MDAs.

“This will eliminate a situation where many Ministries, Departments  and  Agencies  (MDAs)  are pursuing  the same or similar need simultaneously with resultant lack of efficiency and effectiveness while creating overlapping and waste,” the statement added.

Meanwhile, workers in Ekiti are set to shutdown civil service activities in the state if the state government fails to meet their demand within the next 48 hours.
