DCA Procurement Manual applies to all DCA operations whether implemented by DCA office or implemented by partners. If stricter procurement procedures are stipulated by a donor, then the donor’s procedures shall prevail. If less strict procedure is set by the donor then the procedures described in this manual shall be followed.
Operations funded through the Global ACT network through a multilateral agreement on the basis of an ACT appeal will not be required to follow the procedures of this manual, as DCA’s contractual relationship is with ACT CO, and not the partner. However where there does exist a bilateral contractual relationship with a partner, either in the ACT network or otherwise, the policies and procedures of this manual will apply, and will be annexed to any cooperation agreement.
