The e-government procurement system is expected to cut paper clutter involved in the current governance processes. Also, it would reduce human contact that most of the times lead to the payment of bribes to officials involved in the procurement process.
Ten government entities including Uganda Revenue Authority, PPDA, Kampala Capital City Authority and Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) are to pilot on the system and then be consequently widened to all others.
The e-Procurement portal will help government to take a giant leap forward in cleaning up its slow and bureaucratic procurement system by kicking off a pilot electronic procurement system.
The e-government procurement system is aimed at reducing the total time spent during procurement because the submission of bids, bidding documents, invitations and assessments are made electronically hence scaling down the length the procurement process in the manual way would take.
