PUBLIC PROCUREMENT PERFORMANCE REVIEW FORUM 2019

The Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Authority (PPDA) organized the 11th Public Procurement Review Forum under the theme of “Strengthening Non state Actor participation in Monitoring Public procurement contracts for increased social accountability”.

The objective of the forum was to review the performance of the public procurement system in the Financial Year 2018/19; and also come up with proposals on how to improve performance.

During the forum, a framework on Strengthening Non state Actors’ participation in Monitoring Public procurement contracts for increased social accountability was launched by the Hon Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development Hon.Matia Kasaija.

Hon. Kasaija applauded PPDA for the timely feedback; “This is collaborative effort will increase public demand for accountability where the non-state actors are putting immense pressure on public office bearers to be accountable to the public

PPDA with support from the GIZ developed the framework to formalise and govern the collaboration between the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), PPDA and the Procuring and Disposing Entities.

Feedback from the forum will inform the current development process of the Third National Development Plan while the PPDA is also preparing its Fifth Strategic Plan.
