Treasury, Council of Governors form taskforce to fasttrack e-procurement implementation

08 January 2016, 15:14 Mike Munga

Nairobi - The National Treasury and Council of Governors (COG) have formed a taskforce to smoothen the implementation of e-procurement in the counties.

The team will look into the challenges that counties have been facing in implementing the electronic procurement and payment platform and make recommendations.

The team shall report back to Treasury and the CoG on the way forward by end of January 2016.

If recommendations by the taskforce will be implemented, it will give way to a more efficient use of e-procurement in the 47 counties starting March.

The taskforce is made up of three officials from Treasury and three officials from CoG.

The Commission on Revenue Allocation, the Controller of Budget and the Inter-Governmental Fiscal Relations will also each have a representative.

The formation of the team is due to concerns by the governors over the use of IFMIS e-procurement by the counties.

CoG has cited lack of proper infrastructure and capacity challenges as hindering implementation of e-procurement.

During the forum, Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich said the use of the IFMIS system at both levels of government is aimed at ensuring a robust public financial management system.

Both the Chair of Council of Governors Peter Munya and the Council chair of Finance and Economic Planning Committee Wycliffe Oparanya welcomed the move.
