Download  
Summary

The Kenya Institute of Supplies Management (KISM) commissioned the 2008 Operations of Procurement in Kenya study in order to research and document the policies, practices and procedures followed by supply chain practitioners in the public, private, NonGovernmental Organisation (NGO) and donor sectors regarding procurement. In particular, this study focused on identifying and documenting key processes used in procurement of supplies from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as identifying and documenting the key challenges faced by SMEs in securing and fulfilling orders for goods, works and services. The aim of the report is that interventions can be identified and documented that would be useful in assisting Kenya’s SMEs to be more competitive in bidding for and winning tenders and delivering products, works and services on a sustainable basis.
