Did you know that … within 30 days of signing a public contract, a successful tenderer is required to furnish a written statement to the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) and the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA), detailing any payments made as commission for the purpose of obtaining a contract? (see section 85 of Public Procurement Act).
And if no payments were made, then the written statement should state that fact.
If consideration for a public contract is given or offered to any public body, public officer or any other agent in relation to a public contract, such consideration shall be furnished to the Pay-Master General within 30 days from the date of receipt of the consideration.
Failure to furnish a required written statement is an offence, and on conviction has a fine not exceeding TZS 10,000,000 and / or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 years or both.
