At the Second International Conference on Public Procurement Law in Africa, held from 24-25 November 2016 in Cape Town, APPRRU announced the change of the unit’s name to the African Procurement Law Unit – APLU. The conference marked the five-year anniversary of the establishment of the unit and the change of name reflects the expansion of the unit’s focus over its first five years beyond strict research activities to now also include significant training initiatives and assistance to policy makers in designing public procurement law regimes.
