Togo: Authorities in the process of making the construction sector more professional

(Togo First) - In Togo, a mechanism to qualify and classify businesses, consulting agencies and laboratories operating in the construction sector could soon be adopted. Sources close to the public procurement regulator (ARMP) said the document recently got technical validation, and final validation by all actors of the sector should follow rapidly.

The mechanism aims at making the sector more professional by ensuring all construction firms that operate in the country are qualified to do so. Once the mechanism is effective, “some businesses and organizations will no longer be qualified for some public contracts,” the sources indicate.

In effect, the classification will be based on various criteria including, size, technical ability, staff’s size, skills level, financial capacity, and experience with carrying out or monitoring of public projects. Regarding the mechanism’s final validation, it befalls the ministry of construction, the ARMP, construction firms, consulting firms, construction laboratories and actors of the civil society. These, depending on their concerns and observations, could amend the document or make recommendations prior to its validation.
