The East African Public Procurement Forum (EAPPF) is a meeting of the public procurement regulatory bodies from the EAC member states which is held annually on a rotational basis since 2008. Delegates from Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda gather to deliberate on public procurement agenda in the region. Participants come from the Public Sector, Private Sector, Professional Organizations, Civil Society and Training Institutions, among others.
The objective of the annual forum is to enhance interaction between different actors in public procurement in the East African Community and to give stakeholders an opportunity to share their experiences and efforts towards improving and harmonizing the public procurement landscape in the region. The resolutions of the forum are focused on strengthening the efforts towards harmonization of the public procurement systems, legislations and practices within the EAC.
