PPOA Probes On KRA Tender

A probe into claims of irregularities in the award of a Sh1.2 billion tender for automation of the KRA’s integrated customs management system will proceed next week.

The Public Procurement Administrative Review Board director general Maurice Juma yesterday ordered parties to appear before the board on Tuesday.

This is after the aggrieved bidder, Webb Fontaine Group, sought directions from the board on the manner in which the probe will proceed. The tender was awarded to TradeMark East Africa.

Juma instructed the Kenya Revenue Authority and TradeMark East Africa to five the board all tender documents for all bidders who participated in the tender process. He ordered Webb Fontaine Group to file written submissions on substantive request for review by 10am on July 6.
