The Africa Network for Environment & Economic Justice (ANEEJ) under USAID/SACE grant no. SACE-ISWF-007 – Tackling Corruption through Improving Transparency in Property Ownership – is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the design of a website for the mapping and reporting of properties illegally acquired with proceeds of crime by Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs). The idea is to identify the real owners of property in highbrow areas in Abuja and check with the Federal Inland Revenue Service whether such property owners are paying tax to government. The attached RFP contains all the necessary information for interested Offerors.
It is a common knowledge that Nigeria, like many other countries in Africa, suffers severe leakage of its public resources through corrupt means. Public funds that could be better used to address critical national development needs, such as those in health, education, electricity, roads, and other infrastructural projects for the social, political, and economic well-being of the country are diverted by PEPs and civil servants. The proceeds of such crimes are often times hidden in foreign safe havens or are used for the acquisition of private property within and outside Nigeria.
As a direct response to the situation, ANEEJ has designed a project entitled Tackling Corruption through Improving Transparency in Property Ownership and one of the objectives of the project is to develop an on-line platform to map and share information on ownership of property in specific districts of Abuja. The idea is to identify persons who own specific property and determine whether such persons are meeting their tax obligations to the government. To this end, ANEEJ, seeks the service of a renowned web development firm having experience in website design using different platforms.Companies or organizations should indicate their interest in submitting a proposal for the anticipated subcontract by sending an email indicating their intention to ANEEJ’s Secretariat at email@example.com by 05:00pm on February 02, 2018.
