Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has suffered another huge blow as they prepare for 2022 general election. This follows the cancellation of Kiems tender by Public Procurement Administration and Review Board (PPRAB) which ruled that the tender for the supply delivery, installation testing commissioning support and maintenance of Kiems and its hardware equipment was illegally awarded.
IEBC had advertised the tender under No IEBC/OIT/001/2020/2021 and set deadline for May 14, but it was later extended for June 18 following issuance of three addendum to the render documents.
IEBC has now been directed to prepare a fresh tender documents within the next 30 days taking into consideration, the provision of the constitution of Kenya, Procurement and Assets Disposal Act, Public Procurement and Disposal and Asset Disposal Regulations 2020.
Risk Africa Innovation Limited had filed the case claiming that the tender document didn't provide preferred margin for locals supplier as it is demanded by constitution of Kenya.
