Sensitization on E-Procurement
SRC in partnership with the IFMIS Department under the National Treasury organized a Sensitization Training on Electronic Procurement (E-Procurement) on Sept. 26, 2016 at Railway Training Institute. The training was for various firms currently registered by the Commission and those interested in future registration under Youth, Women and Persons with Disabilities for the financial years 2016-2017 and 2017-2018.
Suppliers were sensitized on the E-procurement functions that are configured in the IFMIS system. They also had an opportunity to raise questions on the various challenges they encounter while using the system.
Under E-Procurement, suppliers follow an automated procurement process of managing their profiles, quotations, purchase orders, receipts, invoices and payments, contracts among others. E-Procurement has introduced a new era to public procurement by ending the manual procurement challenges the country has experienced in the past.
