en Download (880.47 KB)

This report provides a general overview of the emergency procurement measures implemented by African ministries of finance and procurement authorities in response to the COVID-19 crisis and evaluates those measures against considerations of accountability and transparency. It is critical that this balance is achieved because the emergency procurement process is very susceptible to corruption (Schultz, 2008). The report utilises data collected as part of the Collaborative Africa Budget Reform Initiative’s (CABRI) COVID-19 Public Finance Response Monitor (PF Response Monitor) and contributes a big-picture analysis of how African public financial management (PFM) systems have fared during this crisis.
