21. What is the difference between the ‘Notification of Award’ and an ‘Letter of Award’?

A Notification of Award is issued by the Procuring Entity to a successful Bidder notifying him of the decision of the Tenders Board to award the relevant contract to him and stating the obligatory fees he has to pay prior to the issuance of a substantive letter of Award.

Upon payment of the obligatory fees or communication of the contractor’s decision to have the said fees deducted at source, a Letter of Award is registered with PPA and issued to the Contractor.

15. Can small organisations enter into business relationships with the State Government?

The Lagos State Government recognises SMEs as the engines of socio-economic transformation and industrialisation, and in its commitment to their development specifically encourages SMEs to provide goods, works or services to the State Government.

Furthermore, one of the objectives of the PPA is to create ample opportunities for small and medium scale enterprises to participate in the economic opportunities and benefits of public procurement.

Opportunities are therefore open to any size of organisation. For specific assignments the State Government may require participants to demonstrate similar relevant experience commensurate to size and type of the assignment, a minimum turnover or company size to qualify; in such cases the advertisement/bid document will clearly request for documentation in this regard.

Notably, organisations are only invited to solicit for contracts within the category and class for which they are registered and qualified.

14. Our vendor registration application was successful but we have not been invited to bid. Why is this?

While you would receive notifications of available opportunities from the platform Licensee, please note that you will only receive electronic invitation to opportunities should the State Government require works, goods or services that your company provides and within the class for which your company is registered. Your company would also be required to meet certain prequalification criteria attached to each opportunity.  

Contractors are encouraged to actively seek out business opportunities advertised on the Procurement Agency’s website https://lagosppa.gov.ng/tenders/.
