Poor monitoring, corruption, inconsistent government policies and political interference among others have been identified as some of the reasons why contract objectives are sometimes not achieved in Nigeria.
Experts in the supply chain management sector said that some top contracts failed because agencies change requirements or scope after the contracts are awarded, adding that poor communication exists between the agency and the contractor.
They noted how effective Post Contract Evaluation (PCE) can help improve contract performance in Nigeria if the evaluation is done in a manner that guarantees fairness while the method and modality for collecting and reporting information should be agreed at the time of signing the contract.
The General Manager, Supply Chain Management, Seplat Petroleum Development Company Plc , Olubusola Ogunbanwo said when all terms of contract are strictly adhered to, it will improve cost effectiveness, encourage benchmarking and ensure delivery of quality among others.
