MILLENNIUM CHALLENGE ACCOUNT NAMIBIA
GENERAL PROCUREMENT NOTICE NO. 5

Millennium Challenge Account Namibia (MCA Namibia), on behalf of the Government of Namibia, intends to apply a portion of the proceeds of the Compact to eligible payments for the procurement of goods, works, non-consulting and consulting services.
