Saint Lucia

Public Procurement in Saint Lucia is overseen by the Minister of Finance through the Office of the Director of Finance. All government agencies perform the procurement function as guided by the Minister of Finance as directed through the Director of Finance. This framework is currently undergoing a reform process aimed at modernizing and improving our capacity to deliver required public services. As these reforms progress and materialize we shall provide updates to this website as well as our official channels.
