Kenya said on Tuesday it will begin training of public servants on how to use Integrated Financial Management Information System’s (IFMIS) e-procurement system to enhance transparency in services. Kenya
The training, to be rolled out on Wednesday by the Treasury, is expected to boost the uptake of the system as the roll-out of the automated procurement and payment platform within the corporations gathers momentum.
“The launch was a major stride towards automating public procurement processes, with the intention of reducing wastage in the use of public resources and entrenching efficiency, effectiveness and accountability in the use of public funds,” said Kamau Thugge, Principal Secretary with the National Treasury.
The training is targeted at procurement, finance and ICT officers from all state corporations and will equip them with knowledge and skills to effectively operate the IFMIS e- procurement system
The e-procurement provides an efficient and streamlined purchasing and payment system by fully automating the process. The training comes barely a week after President Uhuru Kenyatta called for transparency in the procurement process and ordered all ministries to stop awarding tenders in unclear circumstances.
The president’s warning comes after 13 people and three firms implicated in the 16.1 million U.S. dollar controversial Anglo Leasing scandal were arraigned in court this week. Enditem
