The IEA’s study on public procurement and loss of public funds is part of a larger global initiative on promoting civic engagement for open contracting. “Open Contracting” is about publishing and using open, accessible and timely information on government contracting to engage citizens and businesses in identifying and fixing problems”. The underlying principle for open contracting is promoting disclosure of public contracts through all the stages of public procurement. The objectives of the study are to: Examine the public procurement and contracting process in Kenya and establish its strengths and weaknesses; analyse procurement related breaches highlighted by the Auditor General’s reports; track systemic loss of public funds through procurement and generate knowledge on high risk stages of the public procurement process for advocacy by CSOs.
