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.
