‘Technology to enhance procurement audit’


By Llywellenie Mpasa

Expectations are high that e-Government Procurement (e-GP) will reduce human interfaces and reduce corruption cases.

This follows revelations that the Public Procurement and Disposal of Assets Authority (PPDA) implemented an online procurement system in May.


This came out recently when the PPDA trained 45 procurement officers from various government ministries, departments and agencies on ‘Digital Transformation System’, a platform that will automate all public procurement and asset disposal matters in the country.

PPDA Director General Edington Chilapondwa said the system will fasten bid submission and tracking and supplier registration and certification processes in a transparent, efficient and effective manner.

“The system will improve collaboration, analysis and decision-making through centralised data management and reduce waste, inefficiencies, and human error,” Chilapondwa said.


Blantyre District Council Procurement Officer Madalitso Yasin said the E-procurement system has helped eliminate the need to manually carry out laborious, procurement-related tasks.
