PPRA LAUNCHES ITS BRAND IDENTITY AND 2019 – 2023 STRATEGIC PLAN
The Public Procurement and Assets Disposal Act, 2015 came into effect on 7 January, 2016 and with it the Public Procurement Oversight Authority (PPOA) was transformed from an oversight body to a regulatory authority giving it a new name – Public Procurement Regulatory Authority, and established the Public Procurement Regulatory Board to oversee the management of the new Authority. The Regulatory Board was appointed in September, 2018.
Following the legal changes in the Procurement law, PPRA undertook a rebranding exercise to develop a new brand supported by communications efforts to introduce and roll out the new brand. In particular, this was geared towards aligning the brand promise of the organization to the expectations of its internal and external stakeholders.
The Strategic Plan charts out the PPRA’s long term strategic goals for carrying out its mission of regulating the public procurement and asset disposal system through monitoring and enforcement for socio economic development in Kenya. It integrates the country’s aspirations as spelt out in Medium Term Plan III and the ‘Big Four Agenda’ of universal healthcare, food security, affordable housing and manufacturing.
The Plan is driven by a core message whose effervescent theme is enforcement of standards through compliance monitoring; prevention of corruption risk in public procurement; education of stakeholders; provision of accurate and timely information; and debarment of suppliers who breach the procurement law.
The brand and strategic plan launch ceremony took place on 16th July, 2019 at Movenpick Hotel, Westlands.
