Public Procurement Administrative Review Board – PPARB


To quickly find what you are looking for, use the search facility below.



Public Procurement Administrative Review Board (PPARB) is a continuation of the Public Procurement Complaints, Review and Appeals Board which had been established under the Exchequer and Audit (Public Procurement) Regulations, 2001. It was established to promote and uphold fairness in public procurement through impartial adjudication of disputed procurement proceedings.

The board is autonomous and has six members nominated by various organisations as prescribed in Regulation 68 (1) (a) and three others appointed by the Minister for Finance.

After the review of a dispute, the board may:

  1. Annul what the procuring entity has done in procurement proceedings
  2. Direct the procuring entity to do or redo the procurement proceedings
  3. Substitute the decision of the review board
  4. Order the payment of costs between parties to the review.

A decision of the review board is final and binding on the parties although they have a right to go to court for judicial review. But this must be within 14 days from the date of the board’s decision. Any party aggrieved by the decision of the board may appeal to the High Court and the decision of the court is final. If any party disobeys the decision of the board or the High Court, their actions would be null and void. But if judicial review is not declared within 30 days from the date of filing, the decision of the board takes effect.
