DRAFT PUBLIC PROCUREMENT PERFORMANCE MONITORING AND EVALUATION (M&E) POLICY AND FRAMEWORK
Invitation to Submit Views/Comments on Draft Public Procurement Performance Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) Policy and Framework
The Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (the Authority) is mandated pursuant to Section 9 (1)(a) of the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act, 2015 (the Act) to monitor, assess and review the public procurement and asset disposal system to ensure that they respect the national values and other provisions of the Constitution, including making recommendations for improvements. Further, Section 9(1)(b) of the Act empowers the Authority to monitor the public procurement and asset disposal system and report on the overall functioning of it and present to the Cabinet Secretary National Treasury and Planning and the County Executive Member for Finance in each county, such other reports and recommendations for improvements. Further, Section 9(1)(d) & (e) of the Act vests the Authority with additional functions relating to monitoring and evaluation of the public procurement and asset disposal system.
As a regulator, the Authority at all times is required to provide accurate information and data on the performance of the public procurement and asset disposal system in Kenya. In this regard, the Authority has developed a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Policy and Framework to act as an avenue for coordinated data and information collection, analysis and management. The framework is intended to provide linkages amongst all the functions that the Authority is required to implement under the Act. Similarly, the framework should also be able to meet the reporting requirements of the Authority as well as the needs of the Authority’s external stakeholders.
The M&E policy and framework will be used for assessing and understanding the performance of the public procurement and asset disposal system including establishment of baselines for the framework. The framework will also provide a roadmap for monitoring and evaluating the contribution of the public procurement and asset disposal processes in the realization of the key guiding principles and objectives outlined under Article 227 of the Constitution, 2010 and Sections 3 and 4 of the Act.
In line with Article 10 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 on National Values and Principles of Governance and Section 9(1)(q) of the Act, the Authority hereby invites Public Entities, Suppliers, Members of the public, Professional Bodies/ Associations, Non-State Actors and other interested stakeholders to submit their comments and inputs based on the draft PPRA M&E Policy and Framework.
