The Public Procurement & Property Administration Agency signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Innovation & Technology to implement electronic government procurement. The agreement was signed between Getahun Mekuria (PhD), minister of Innovation & Technology, and Martha Luwingi, director general of the Agency. “The e-gov procurement will alleviate manual processes and overall service, especially in tendering processes,” said Getahun. The Agency’s staff has given a half-day workshop and training on the implementation strategy and roadmap. The development and implementation of an e-procurement system will be carefully planned based on the government-defined, functional and business requirement, according to Getahun.
