Public Procurement can be defined as the acquisition, whether under formal contract or not, of works, supplies and services by public bodies. It ranges from the purchase of routine supplies or services, to formal tendering and placing contracts for large infrastructural projects by a wide and diverse range of contracting authorities.
KCETB aims to obtain the best value for money in procuring the goods and services it needs. We comply with public procurement rules and regulations and internal purchasing procedures.
KCETB has availed of a number of Framework Agreements as set up by the Office of Government Procurement (OGP). The OGP focuses primarily on establishing and managing framework contracts for goods and services that are broadly used across all public service sector. Where there is no Framework established by the OGP, KCETB may set up its own, depending on the nature of the contract. KCETB has numerous contracts in place for the provision of certain goods and services, based on the thresholds outlined below throughout the year.
