What We Do

The Procurement Unit is responsible for ensuring that the Ministry of Works and Transport complies with the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Property Act 1 of 2015 establishment of the Office of Procurement regulation; and, Repeal of the Central Tenders Board Act Chapter 71:91 and regulations and its sole responsibility is to manage public procurement on behalf of the Ministry of Works and Transport.

The Unit also facilitates the process of finding and agreeing to terms, and acquiring goods, services, or works from an external source, often via a tendering or competitive bidding process.

All operations related to procurement are executed through a special committee referred to as the Permanent Secretary Tenders Committee who liaise with successful contractors and issue tender documents.
