Inappropriate use of procurement method for Kshs. 272,531,900.

Section 59(1) of the repealed Public Procurement and Disposal Regulations, 2006 require that, a procuring entity, that conducts procurement using the Request For Quotations (RFQ) method shall be subject to the procurement thresholds set out in the First Schedule.
The special audit established that procurement amounting to Kshs. 272,531,900.00 were undertaken through Requests for Quotations (RFQs) and did not meet the threshold set under the regulations. These procurement process should have been done through open tender since the amounts involved were above the RFQ threshold.
