- From July 1, details of tenders and awards will be made available to the public

- It was a move announced by State House on Wednesday, June 13 that would aid in the fight against graft

- An electronic system of procurement will also be deployed in 2019

President Uhuru Kenyatta has made another major stride in the fight against corruption after he ordered government entities and public institutions to publish details of their tenders.

The president has given institutions up to Sunday, July 1 to publicise details of various tenders and awards.

State House spokesperson Manoah Esipisu, in a statement seen by TUKO.co.ke, divulged the move was aimed at promoting transparency and accountability both in government and public institutions.

“In line with His Excellency the President’s commitment to entrench good governance in the management of public affairs, and deepen accountability and transparency in the procurement of public goods, works and services, the president has today issued an executive order on Procurement of Public Goods, Works and Services by Public Entities,” the statement read in part.

To further ensure accountability in the procurement process, Uhuru is also set to launch an Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS) - an electronic platform which will aid in public procurement from January 1 2019.

Esipisu further added that Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich was handed the delicate task of guaranteeing integrity in the system.

Details of tenders which will be open to the public for scrutiny will include the items or services purchased, contract prices, and the particulars of the suppliers including owners, directors and beneficial ownership.

As outlined by TUKO.co.ke earlier, Kenyans were left in anger after a case of ‘blank tenders’ rocked the National Youth Service for the second time in less than five years.

In May 28, one Anne Ngirita was on the spot for allegedly receiving KSh 59 million for supplying nothing to the NYS.

Uhuru had subsequently ordered the sending home of all heads of procurement and accounting heads in public offices for fresh vetting.

The president had also suggested the use of polygraph tests to prove the integrity of the officials before they are allowed back to work.
