Kenya launches online e-procurement systemThe Kenyan government has launched an online system for submitting and evaluating procurement applications in a bid. This is done in an effort to become more efficient and eliminate corruption. Subsequently the goal is also to slash long queues and processes that take time.

As part of the ‘Integrated Financial Management Information System’ (IFMIS) under the national treasury, the system is intended to give applicants clear instructions and guidelines on how to apply for procurement from government. The system is expected to reduce government spending by having a level playing field for all.

Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta stated at the launch of the system in Nairobi: “Over the years, we have heard complaints from Kenyans that the government is being over-charged for goods and services that it purchases. By introducing transparency and accountability through e-procurement, we expect to eliminate the abuse of our procurement system.”
