The Minister of State for General Duties, Henry Musasizi, has urged the leadership of the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Authority (PPDA) to focus on attaining results in line with the procurement principles of transparency, accountability, and fairness in the procurement and disposal process.

He made these remarks on October 6, 2023, at the PPDA headquarters at plot 39 Nakasero Hill, Kampala, where he met with the Board.

“This will in turn ensure efficient and effective service delivery and value for money,” Musasizi said.

Musasizi met the Board to deliberate on the fulfilment of the Authority’s mandate, which is to regulate and facilitate public procurement in Uganda by setting standards, building capacity, monitoring compliance, and ultimately contributing to socio-economic development.

PPDA is a parastatal organisation in Uganda that is responsible for the regulation and supervision of the procurement and disposal of government-owned property and other assets.
