For public sector projects: (i) review and prepare no-objections to procurement documents (including but not limited to procurement notices, tender documents and tender evaluation reports) and (ii) review contracts and, where applicable, contract amendments and variation orders, to ensure compliance with the PP&R and adopted project strategy and mitigate the risk of procurement complaints.
