How is the market price listing developed?
The market price listing

The reference market price listing is the list of prices and tariffs of equipment, office supplies, works and various services likely to be delivered to the government ministries and parastatals .This document in the Annex to an order signed by the Minister in charge of prices at the beginning of each fiscal year. The market price listing is a bible for any vote holder (administrator of public funds) working in a government ministry or parastatal company. Used as a tool to fight against overpricing, it was designed and developed to guide government ministries or parastatal companies for good economic governance. Prices fixed in the market price listing are prices exclusive VAT.

Drawing up the market price listing

Drawing up the market price listing of products, items and various services available to government and parastatals is made up of four steps.

1. The first step is to :

  • define the nomenclature of goods and services provided, in conjunction with relevant technical services;
  • review the ongoing (valid) market price listing   in order to identify inconsistencies (unnecessary redundancies, misprints, etc.) ;
  • prepare all forms necessary for the surveys and field survey operations ;
  • draw up all methodologies for surveys and field surveys ;
  • train supervisors and enumerators.

2. The second step is to: conduct surveys and drafting reports, in accordance with the methodology adopted in the previous step.

3. The third step is to process data and information gathered in the field and identified in the previous step. It consists of :

  • counting and classifying data and information ;
  • computerizing and  processing these data and information ;
  • drafting the Order establishing the reference market price listing and building up volumes containing the various headings that are listed in appendices to that order.

4. The fourth step is to duplicate the market price listing.
