ILI Executive Director to Speak at Procurement Conference along with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan and Former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

ILI Executive Director, Kim Phan will be speaking at the Fourth Annual Conference on Public Procurement in Abuja, Nigeria on July 25 - 26. Al Burman, President of Jefferson Solutions, former Administrator of the U.S. Office of Federal Procurement Policy, and longtime ILI faculty will also be presenting at the conference. This year's conference theme is entitled: A Decade of Procurement Reform.

Procurement reform has been of primary focus in Nigeria, due largely to the establishment of the Bureau of Public Procurement and the enactment of the Public Procurement Act in 2007. Transparency International and the Global integrity report have cited the enactment of the PPA as a key reason for boosting Nigeria's ranking.

This year's conference has gained key political support with the inclusion of President Goodluck Jonathan, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the Senate President, Speaker of the House, Chief Justice, Governors, and Ministers in the program.

ILI has been working on public procurement reform in Nigeria since 2005, and is proud to have supported the Government of Nigeria in this important reform.
