This publication brings together a number of essays focusing on public procurement regulation in Africa aimed at development and outlines the legal landscape.

Public Procurement Regulation in Africa: Development in Uncertain Times outlines the legal landscape for procurement, the fault lines that allow procurement irregularities, including conflict of interest and corruption and is a much needed arsenal not only to state functionaries but also business persons dealing with public sector procurement. The content transcends academic legalese and philosophical discourse and puts forward ideas on arresting procurement maladies and will also be useful for administrative, law enforcement functionaries, consultants, academics and students interested in expanding their procurement knowledge while contributing meaningfully to African procurement reform.

The publication brings together a number of essays focusing on public procurement regulation in Africa aimed at development in uncertain times. The authors are a combination of academics and professionals working in public procurement law, both in Africa and beyond. The editors are Geo Quinot and Sope Williams-Elegbe, both professors of law at Stellenbosch University and co-directors of the African Procurement Law Unit.
