Bureau Objectives

Due Process in Jigawa State is part of an overall governance reform process aimed at ensuring effective and efficient service delivery. The Due Process compendium consists of the basic guidelines governing budget implementation in its totality from spending limits for the various spending units to procedures governing award of contracts for projects, services or procurements. The objectives are:
  • To ensure the existence of harmonized and periodically updated policies and guidelines on public procurement in the State in accordance with best practices;

  • To strictly enforce the Due Process principles of transparency, competition efficiency and value-for-money in the execution of contracts for supplies, works and services in the State as set out in the Due Process Manual and in accordance with its enabling Law;

  • To ensure that project packaging and implementation match the defined priorities and targets as set out in annual appropriation laws of the State;

  • To prevent extra budgetary spending by Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the State by ensuring that only projects contained in the Approved Budget or supported by appropriate Financial Warrants are executed;

  • To ensure value-for-money in the implementation of projects, procurements or service and to prevent contract inflation by ensuring cost reasonableness, accuracy and comparability of all public contracts with national, regional and global costs.
