At the start of 2016, it is with pleasure that I join
the entire staff of the Public Contracts Regulatory Agency (ARMP) to extend our
best wishes to you.
When we launched the ARMP website in 2014, we wanted
to propose to business operators, investors, development partners and other
public procurement stakeholders space for interactive and dynamic information
on the public procurement sector. We invited you to accompany us in this
beautiful adventure by appropriating this site to make it yours.
At the end of
18 months of operation, it is our pleasure to state that many of you have
followed us. We can note for example
- The number of visitors increased from 73 731
from the launching phase to 306 437 in 2015 with record daily access of more than 2 000;
The average monthly visits increased from 12 289 in 2014 to 25 536
The number of the country of origin of visitors rose from 76 to 107 with the top 10 being:
Cameroon, Germany, South Africa, France, the United States of America, China,
Canada, Senegal, the United Kingdom and
- The average monthly click is about 1 109 394 ;
The level of attractiveness rose from 2.65 to 3.85; etc…
These are the indicators which drive us in our
ambition to serve you better. Also, while thanking you for this mark of
confidence and hailing you fidelity, we are announcing the forthcoming
implementation of PRIDESOFT, our integrated system for the management of the
flow of data generated by public contracts. It aims at placing ARMP in a new
era of proactive and real-time regulation through a multi-actor platform of
collection, exchange and collaboration.
With PRIDESOFT, the Journal of Public Contracts (JDM) and the Certificate of Non Exclusion
from Public Procurement (CNE) will undergo a veritable revolution with emphasis
on easy access and better intuitiveness in usage.
In fact, the JDM, which is already downloadable free
of charge, now goes into the “live” mode to enable Contracting Authorities
carry out instantaneous publications (tender notices, awards, signed contracts,
etc…) and bidding enterprises to have information in real time.
As for the CNE, applying for and obtaining them will
be done online to gain in time and energy.
In addition, the institution of “citizen control”
through PRIDESOFT offers citizens the opportunity to have their say in projects
of which they are beneficiaries.
Lastly, the 2016 bouquet will be the possibility
offered to Tenders Boards as well as Evaluation Sub-commissions to directly verify
the authenticity of a CNE through our website and even through their mobile phones!
And the adventure continues…
All these major
innovations whose final goal is the amelioration of access to information by
stakeholders of the public procurement system are within the context of “Quality
Public Service and Governance” of our strategic vision of making ARMP an
efficient institution at the service of the socio-economic development of our
By so doing,
we are contributing to the will of the Head of State of putting in place an
efficient and performative public procurement system susceptible of
accompanying effectively the implementation of the projects that will lead
Cameroon to emergence.
Dear internet users, our wish is that all these
efforts satisfy you and that you come in numbers to make use of the variety of
services proposed by our website.
Happy and prosperous New Year 2016.
