The Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (PPRA) has urged bidders and suppliers of goods and services in the country to seize procurement opportunities presented by the Tanzania National Electronic Procurement System (Taneps), TPJ can authoritatively report.

Speaking at the 43rd Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair in the city recently, PPRA Chief Executive Officer, Eng. Leonard Kapongo, called upon bidders and suppliers to abide with procurement law, including ensuring they register with the system that brings about transparency in public tenders.

Furthermore, Eng. Kapongo called upon members of the public to fully utilize opportunities presented by Taneps in order to benefit from public procurement and urged public procurement stakeholders to enrich their understanding of the system, with a view to enhancing transparency and accountability in procurement processes in the country.

He appealed to members of the public to volunteer information to PPRA whenever they become aware of anyone flouting public procurement law and regulations, vowing that stern action will be taken against the culprits.

Eng.  Kapongo said compliance to the public procurement law facilitates control and efficient spending of public funds to ensure funds earmarked for development projects are spent prudently to meet government expectations.

Taneps, which was launched in June 2018 by Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa supports among others, processes of procuring goods, works, consultancy, non-consultancy and disposal of public assets by tender.  

So far a total of 1,958 suppliers of goods and services from five regions have been registered with the system following government directive issued to suppliers to register themselves with the system so as to increase transparency in public procurement.
