Nairobi - The search for a credible technology company that will supply 16,000 Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits to the electoral commission, is being led by the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC), the Daily Nation reports.
Finance Permanent Secretary Joseph Kinyua on Tuesday said the firm is in the final stages of searching for a qualified firm that can deliver the kits to the specifications of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) before the contract on a KESh4.6 billion concessionary loan can be signed.
Kinyua said that the loan, an export agreement previously negotiated at KES4.6 billion, may surpass KES5 billion after the IEBC demanded additional kits for more BVR stations due to time constraints.
