1.5.1 Purpose: 

The purpose of the Procurement Numbering system introduced by this Manual is to ensure each requirement is given a unique identification to assist in the tracking, monitoring and audit of procurement, and in the tracing and maintenance of records and files. The Procurement Number is assigned at the requisition stage and will form the basis for document filing and management information systems. 

Procurement Numbers are issued from a register maintained by a Stores Department, or the Head of the User Department, Programme or Project as appropriate. Numbers must not be re-used, even if the original procurement is cancelled. 

1.5.2 Structure of the Procurement Number 

The basic Procurement Number consists of four parts as follows: 

  • The Procuring Entity - Up to five letters being the commonly used abbreviation which identifies the Procuring Entity. (e.g. “MOF” for the Ministry of Finance)
  • The Department or Project - Up to five letters used to identify the Department or Project (e.g. “Admin” for the Administration Department) within the Procuring Entity.
  • The Financial Year (e.g. 2005). 
  • A Four-Digit Sequence Number - The sequence number allocated by the Department or Project within the Financial Year (e.g. from 0001 to 9999).


A simple example is “MOF/ADMIN/2005/0022” representing the 22nd requisition raised in the year 2005 by the Administration Department of the Ministry of Finance.

1.5.3 Multiple Bids/RFQs or Multiple Contracts arising from a single Requisition 

When a single requisition results in multiple bids or requests for quotations (RFQ), and/or a bid or RFQ results in multiple contracts, further numbers are added to identify the individual Bid/RFQ and Contract. 


“MOF/ADMIN/2005/0022/1/3” would identify the third contract arising from the first (or only) bidding process or RFQ resulting from the original requisition.
