During his presentation, Basheka expressed concern over failure to recognise procurement as a profession and the incessant perception of the field as a merely clerical or tactical function even when it has continuously been identified as a source of most problems in government projects’ implementation.
“Vision 2040 requires high level involvement of procurement professionals and policy makers must come to a true realisation that procurement needs to be regarded as central to the success of the plan,” Basheka said.
Prof. Basheka further stressed the need for government to be advised on the procurement implications in the vision 2040 and the importance of passing the long delayed IPPU bill to be able to recognise the procurement profession by law.
The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply Branch meeting was attended by different procurement professionals from Uganda.
It was also graced by the presence of Andrew Coetzee, the Managing Director of South Africa’s Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply.
