In line with Presidential directive of 2013 and Public Procurement 2015 and Regulations 2020 to allocate 30% of Government Procurement Opportunities for enterprises owned by Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities to promote economic empowerment, Kibabii University in its Procurement budget reserved 30% for the Preference Groups and in the year 2021 – 2022 the University complied with the requirement and awarded Tenders to the Preference and Reservation Groups.
In complying with the Act, KIBU achieved an average score of 31.2% for the Preference Reservation Groups and 2.4 % for person leaving with disabilities.
