Are the Youth and Women Really Benefiting from Public Procurement Opportunities?

In the last 15 months, According to the AGPO REPORT launched by The Institute of Social Accountability (TISA) on the 30th of March 2023 – Women received 50% of the Contracts Awarded (13078) – with its total value being Ksh. 13.81 Billion (US$. 0.1381 Mn). The Youth received 44% of the Contracts Awarded (10411) – with its total value being Ksh. 10.65 Billion (US$. 0.1065 Mn). PWDs received 6% of the Contracts Awarded (1789) – with it’s total value being Ksh. 2 Billion (US$. 0.02 Mn)

The proportion and value of government contracts awarded to women suppliers are still low. The Kenya Economic Survey report for instance notes that women received only 26 percent of the total amount of funds reserved in the 2019/2020 financial year (KNBS, 2020).

The report aims at identifying factors that keep women from accessing government procurement opportunities and measures instituted to overcome the barriers.
