Federal Polytechnic Mubi., Rector Pinpoint Problems With TETFUND Application.

The Rector of the Federal Polytechnic Mubi, Dr Sadiq Yahya has identified the Problem with Tertiary Education Trust Fund application.
Tertiary Education Trust Fund is now the only source of funding of capital projects in tertiary institution, Dr Sadiq Yahya, the Rector, Federal Polytechnic, Mubi, has said.
Yahya made the disclosure to journalists in Mubi on Saturday, while noting the challenges being faced by tertiary institutions in their utilisation of TETfund intervention.

He ascribed this challenge to some sections of procurement Acts of 2007, which, he said, had stifled the efficiency of TETfund interventions, on the procurement of “intervention items”.

He called for the amendment of the procurement acts to allow online procurement and redress the bureaucratic bottlenecks encountered.

“Regarding TETfund, we are aggressive because it is the main source of funding of capital projects in the tertiary educational system in our nation. But there are still some challenges besetting the maximisation of its allocations because of the procurement Acts of 2007,” he added.

He explained that the efficiency of TETfund allocations to tertiary institutions could be maximised through the introduction of a ‘blank template cheque’.

By this, he said, polytechnics should be allowed to allocate TETfund interventions from their TSA accounts based on their own procurement plans, but which it must however then have to defend and justify before TETfund. He said a pilot trial of the blank template cheque could be tested with polytechnics.
