Abstract
This study reviewed the public procurement practices in Nigeria and the effort of the various government teams to address some of the problems associated with it. Using descriptive narrative, the study looked at the performance of procurement functions in the Civil service prior to the country’s transition to democratic dispensation and it’s advent subsequently. Reviewing the various reform policies introduce between 1999 and 2015, the study discovered that the challenges facing public procurement in Nigeria are many and diverse; some of which appear to be insurmountable but could only be moderated. The study concluded that reforms are necessary and vital; it therefore recommends that a law should be created which should be binding on all the tiers of government in order to build consensus among them so as to promote the smooth implementation of the procurement reforms; build a critical mass of people who understand the rules and processes along the procurement value chain; create a mechanism for sanctioning non-compliant actors and the deployment of Technology to minimize human interaction.
