The move seeks to ensure enhanced service delivery and effectiveness on issues relating to public procurement.

The initiative is meant to promote equitable development across the county’s 247 villages and will be awarded through a fair, transparent, competitive and a cost-effective manner.

The e-procurement is a legal provision under the Public Finance Management 2012 -section 12{1}- and helps the system monitor procurement opportunities to the preference groups including women, youths and persons living with disabilities.
