The Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Authority has in the bid to contribute to economic growth organised a business exposition 2022 that will take place from July 8 to July 10 at Kololo Independence Grounds.
The exposition will provide companies with a unique platform to inform, educate and network with various stakeholders while assisting providers to tap into opportunities that public procurement offers to accelerate recovery from the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The goal of the exposition is to enhance stakeholders’ understanding of the PPDA processes and systems geared towards delivering procurement effectively by allowing these companies to exhibit, collaborate and grow together: which are today’s pillars of growth.
The Uganda government annually spends up to 60% of its budget on Public Procurement of a vast range of goods, services, supplies and works; making the exposition a desirable marketplace for any provider looking for new business opportunities.
The exposition will also serve as an opportunity for government agencies to showcase their achievements and accountability to the population.
The much-needed platform will aggregate entities in the private and corporate sectors, multi-national agencies, government ministries, departments & agencies and the general public.
In a statement, PPDA said the expo will also offer an opportunity to suppliers /providers and other stakeholders a chance to engage with key personnel and organizations that contribute to public procurement.
“We shall leverage the exposition to train stakeholders on the Electronic Government Procurement (eGP), bid support and conduct skill development sessions under different categories such as; Business Financial Management, Agribusiness, Procurement And Bid Support, Customer Relations, Tax Planning & Management, Marketing And Branding And Social Value & Sustainability as part of enhancing companies and propelling national development. All skills seminars will be for free,” said a statement from PPDA.
Suppliers/providers who haven’t registered for EGP will be registered and trained for free and a PPDA certificate will be accessed in One day during the expo.
PPDA appealed to all registered providers and accounting officers across the government Ministries, Departments, Agencies and local governments to book their exhibition space via [email protected] or call Ms Hellen Netta at 0704627696, 0772479365.
