The Due Process and Price Intelligence Department (DPPID) as a Public Procurement Reform Programme was set up by Senator Liyel Imoke in 2007 as part of the reforms put in place by the administration in all sectors of the Economy in the State. DPPID, otherwise known as Due Process was set up primarily to control flagrant abuses to rules and standards in the award of, and execution of public contracts in Cross River State. These deviations from rules were evident in acts like inflation of contract costs, diversion of public funds through all manner of manipulations of the Contract Mechanism, use of primordial considerations in exercising procurement decisions and the like. The implication of these abuses over the years was the abandonment of government projects after large sums of money have been paid out to contractors from public treasury. In addition, it brought about endemic corruption, poor service delivery, poverty and denial of social amenities to the people. The mandate and vision of the Due Process and Price Intelligence Department is to restore transparency, fair competition, competence, integrity and ultimately, value for money in the award and execution of public contracts and Procurement in Cross River State. The DPPID in this regard implements vigorously a Reform Agenda that applies the Due Process Mechanism towards the restoration of openness, budgetary discipline and efficient projects implementation in a well-planned and coordinated framework.
The Due Process and Price Intelligence Bureau (DPPIB), was formally established through the Cross River State Public Procurement Act No. 15 of 2011.
Section 5(i) of the Act State Inter-alia that “There is established for the State an Agency known as the Cross River State Due Process and Price Intelligence Bureau.
what was functioning as the Government Department of Due Process and Price intelligence, created in 2007 by Senator Liyel Imoke, now operates as Bureau of Due Process and Price Intelligence under Governor Ayade with the position of Special Adviser now changed to Director General.
