Institute for Public Policy Research's faces challenges in the procurement process

According to the Institute for Public Policy Research's (IPPR) research, there have been several challenges in Namibia's procurement process, including a lack of competition, weak procurement capacity, and inadequate monitoring and evaluation. 

These challenges have led to limited access to public contracts for small and medium-sized enterprises, delays in project implementation, and the misuse of public funds.

The IPPR has released its latest procurement tracker, which investigates and provides transparency around the country's procurement practices.
