The Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (the Authority) established under the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act, 2015(the Act) is mandated to among others: monitor the public procurement and disposal system, report on its overall functioning, and recommend areas of improvement. To this end, the Authority embarked on the process of conducting a country procurement assessment (the Assessment) Using OECD – DAC Joint Venture Methodology whose objective is to identify weaknesses in the legal framework and in the applications in order to come up with recommendations for improvements and remedial measures against weaknesses and irregularities in the system.

Due to the complexity and specialized nature of the assignment; independence and the relevance of the results/report locally and internationally, GIZ extended technical assistance to the Authority by engaging a consultant to manage the assessment cited above. As part of the scope of the assignment, the consultant was expected to prepare TORs and RFP document; spearhead planning, and manage the contract to ensure that the contracted firm delivers the assignment.

The consultant identified for the above assignment offered technical expertise in the processing of the Expression of Interest and preparation of the terms of reference and request for proposal document used to source bids/proposal. The process of identifying and engaging a firm to conduct the assessment has since been concluded and the Authority signed a contract agreement with successful bidder, to conduct the assessment. Note that the scope of the assignment was 34 days and the initial consultant has since implemented 16 days with 18 days remaining to conclusion. However, the GIZ program under which the initial consultant contract was anchored ended before the assessment was concluded.

Arising from above, the Authority intends to procure the service of the initial consultant to manage the assessment for the remaining phase through Single Source Selection method in accordance with Section 124(12)(b) of the Act as the tasks to be carried out represent a natural continuation of previous work/tasks carried out by the initial consultant, contracted by GIZ.

This intention notice to single source is made pursuant to Section 124 (14) of the Act and interested persons are required to submit their interest enclosed in plain sealed envelopes, marked with the relevant Number and Name and should be deposited in the Tender Box provided at PPRA Office on the 10th floor, National Bank Building, Harambee Avenue, Nairobi so as to be received on or before Thursday, 8 th February, 2018 at 10.00 a.m. and addressed to:

The Director-General,

Public Procurement Regulatory Authority,

P. O. Box 58535 – 00200,
