In a bid to improve road safety and reduce traffic accidents, Angola has announced a significant investment of $2.3 million in the purchase of vehicles dedicated to enhancing road safety measures.

This initiative, spearheaded by Esperança da Costa, the coordinator of the CNVOT, aims to address the pressing issue of road and traffic planning in the country.

The announcement of the investment was made public through the unveiling of an electronic dynamic procedure, which will see the acquisition of these safety vehicles in five different lots.

The estimated value of the contract amounts to $2.3 million and will be financed through the General State Budget (OGE) of 2024, inclusive of a 14 percent Value Added Tax (VAT).

It is important to note that the procurement procedure is restricted to local entities, with foreign participation not permitted.

Interested economic operators must comply with the regulations set out by the public entity, which includes the provision of proof of ownership of the vehicles and ensuring their prompt delivery within 20 days of the conclusion of the contract.

The electronic auction for the purchase of these safety vehicles is scheduled to take place on May 10th, facilitated through the Ministry of Finance’s Public Procurement Portal platform.

The competitive nature of the auction will be based on the lowest price criterion, with strict measures put in place to prevent corrupt and fraudulent practices.
