Dematerialization of public services : the ''E-supplier'' module launched for a better management of private sector's claims on Government

Prime Minister Patrick Achi officially launched on Wednesday, September 21st, 2022, a new platform the called « E-supplier ». This platform that is a part of the Integrated System for the Management of State Budgetary Operations (SIGOBE) will allow suppliers and economic operators of the State to follow the situation of their invoices, from commitment to payment online.

The launching ceremony was held in the presence of four members of government and representatives of the private sector led by Jean-Marie Ackah, President of the Ivorian Employers' Association (CGECI).

In his speech, the Prime Minister insisted on the fact to have a strong private sector, it is necessary to build an administration that commits itself to improving the quality of its services.

The vision of the President of the Republic, H.E. Alassane Ouattara, for the ten coming years is to place the private sector’s improvement at the heart of the government's action in order to make this private sector "the real engine of growth, creator of wealth and employment ». This is why measures have been taken to address the main concerns expressed by the private sector during the government seminar of April 2021 dedicted to discussions with  Ivorian Employers' Association.

The Minister of Budget and State Owned Entities argued that the new platform aims to provide an appropriate response to the issue of the paiement deadlines of private sector claims on the government. He explained that the E-supplier module is a significant step forward in the implementation of the policy of automation and dematerialization of administration’s processes, particularly in the field of public finance management. It is a tool that will contribute to reinforcing the quality of the interractions between the public administration and its suppliers. "Allowing the supplier to have a precise idea of the situation of his file until the payment mandate is taken care of, is to significantly advance our administration and effectively fight against the accumulation of liabilities," said Moussa Sanogo, noting that E-supplier solves the nagging question of the celerity and transparency in the treatment of suppliers' files.

In this regard, the Minister of Economy and Finance, Adama Coulibaly, said that the technical work carried out on the interoperability of the platforms of the administrations concerned, took into account the new invoice payment deadlines proposed by the Working Group on this subject and adopted by the Government December, 8th 2021. The new payment terms are 30 days for invoices of less than 30 million CFA francs, representing 97% of invoices; 60 days for invoices of 30 to 100 million CFA francs (2%); and 90 days for those exceeding 100 million CFA francs.

As at August 31st, 2022, the Minister recalled, CFAF 298.4 billion had been paid as customer debt and supplier debt out of a total of CFAF 446.6 billion, i.e. a settlement rate of 67%, with an average delay of eighteen (18) days.

On behalf of private sector actors, Jean-Marie Ackah welcomed the implementation of this powerful tool whose launch convinces of the Governement's commitment to develop "concrete and relevant solutions" such as the E-supplier, which will be an important step forward in terms of improving the business environment.
