The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance, Mr Ramatha Ggoobi, has said the government will rollout Electronic Government Procurement (e-GP) in all its entities to quicken decision making and also minimise procurement-related corruption.
The e-GP is an integrated system designed to digitise the process of procurement and disposal in all government ministries, departments and agencies.
Speaking to journalists at a leadership and sponsorship awareness engagement programme on the Electronic Government Procurement System held at Kampala yesterday, Mr Ggoobi said the system would be rolled out in 420 government entities in two years’ time.
“So far, we have piloted the system in 36 government entities. We are now going to [work on] the remaining 420 in a phased manner, but within two years. By the end of Financial Year 2025/2026, the entire government procurement should be done online,” he said.
