If Executive Order No. 2 of 2018 is prioritized and maintained, in 2020, we
can start to track the percentage of funds allocated to information system
(transparency promoting) projects.
In his desire to make the government accountable and tackle the runaway
corruption, President Uhuru Kenyatta issued Executive Order No. 2 of 2018,
directing public entities to, from July 1, maintain and continuously update
and publicise complete information of all tenders awarded.
Subsequently, the Public Procurement Information Portal — an online
platform for the publication of contract awards and tender notices by
public bodies — was set up to consolidate and upload such information on a
monthly basis. More than 7,000 tenders and 1,500 contracts worth Sh50
billion awarded to 4,200 suppliers have been posted to enhance transparency
in the public procurement of goods and services.
