Who we are
In January 2016, the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act, 2015 (the Act) was enacted. This massively changed the mandate of the Public Procurement Oversight Authority (PPOA) as it largely assumed the regulatory function which then transited to Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (PPRA). The Act establishes the Public Procurement Regulatory Authority among other functions, to monitor, assess and review the public procurement and Asset Disposal system to ensure they respect the National values and other provisions including Article 227 of the constitution on public procurement.
PPRA has two boards namely; Public Procurement Regulatory Board and Public Procurement Administrative Review Board. PPRA is headed by the Director General and has two directorates namely; Directorate of Technical Services and Directorate of Finance and Administration each headed by a General Manager.
The Administrative Review Board
The Public Procurement Administrative Review Board (PPARB) as stated in Section 25 of the Public Procurement and Disposal Act (PPDA), 2005 is a continuation of the Public Procurement Complaints, Review and Appeals Board which was established under the Exchequer and Audit (Public Procurement) Regulations, 2001. It was established to promote and uphold fairness in the Public Procurement System through judicious and impartial adjudication of matters arising from disputed procurement proceedings.
