NAIROBI, November 27, 2017
The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service has conducted a tender sensitisation workshop for firms categorised under special groups (women, youth and persons with disabilities).
The workshop, which was held on November 27, 2017 covered the provisions of the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act; continuous registration of suppliers; requirements for registration; responsibilities of the supplier; quality of goods and services; sources of information on procurement opportunities and invoice payment processes, among others.
Representatives of 45 firms duly registered to provide various goods and services in Kenya attended.
A similar training was conducted for the Placement Service staff on November 30, 2017. The session, which was meant to create awareness on the regulations and processes in the procurement system in Kenya, was facilitated by the Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (PPRA). Opening the training, Placement Service Chief Executive Officer John Muraguri emphasised the importance of the sensitization to the staff.
A representative of the Public Procurement Regulatory Authority sensitised the participants on the recent changes in the public procurement law, and the implementation of e-procurement and its effects on the organisation’s operations.
The training covered the amended Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act of 2015; the roles and responsibilities of user departments and committees; and the procurement process, among others.
