The Ministry of Education has been allocated Ksh.1.9 billion by the Government to purchase locally assembled desks to both public secondary and primary schools.
The Ministry of Education through a notice published on Tuesday in the local dailies, invited interested local Juakali workshops and artisans to apply for the job to supply the desks at the sub-county level.
To ensure transparency in awarding of tenders, The Juakali artisans will be required to register for the tenders using prescribed forms.
The Forms can be downloaded from the websites of the Ministries of Interior and Education.
The artisans can also physically collect the forms from the Deputy County Commissioners and Assistant County Commissioners offices countrywide.
“To ensure openness, transparency and fairness in this process, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, through their grassroots structures, will adopt a model similar to the one deployed in the Kazi Mtaani Initiative to identify and pay qualifying suppliers,” reads the notice.
The Design archetypes of the desks will be available at the County Commissioners, County Directors of Education and their sub county offices.
“Duly filled forms are to be returned to the aforementioned offices by 18th September, 2020,” adds the notice.
