Finance and Planning Minister Philip Mpango has directed heads of public institutions, which are yet to join in the Tanzania National e-Procurement System (TANePS) to do so before December 31.
Dr Mpango warned that those institutions that will fail to join in the system will be forced to vacate their offices.
He made the remarks shortly after receiving the 2018/2019 public procurement report on Friday evening.
Handing over the report Public Procurement Regulatory Authority chairman Matern Lumbanga revealed that only 303 out of 540 public entities (equivalent to 56 per cent) are currently using TANePS.
“Since the beginning of this calendar year, the number of public entities, which are using TANePS has increased from 71 to 303, thanks to efforts by the authority including training to procurement officers and the woul-be-bidders,” said Dr Lumbanga.
However, this didn’t seat well with Dr Mpango, who said the deadline for all public entities to start using TANePS was well overdue.
