A new newspaper specialising in regional procurement issues will
be launched tomorrow.

Steven Asiimwe, the Editor-in-Chief of East African Procurement
News said yesterday, "This paper will be about the latest on
procurement, purchasing in government and private companies,
tenders, contracts, and who has bought what among other things."

He said the paper will focus mainly on East Africa, but it will
also carry items from a global perspective. The paper's head-
quarters are in Kampala, but offices will be set up in Nairobi
and Dar es Salaam.

"We are trying to bridge the gap that is existing between sup-
pliers and bidders, government and private business in regards
to procurement. Government spends about 70% of its budget on
procurement, so this is timely publication," he said. An Inter-
net version is also being planned.

The first ever regional, weekly news publication about procure-
ment has been launched.

Mondo Kagonyera the general duties minister in the prime minis-
ter's office, launched the newspaper at Hotel Africana on

Stephen Asiimwe, the editor in chief, said the paper's broad
spectrum focuses on East African corporation.

He said, "following the new procurement regulations in East Af-
rica, the paper will reveal the problems and progress of capac-
ity building of the industry."

He said 70% of the region's expenditure is on procurement, and
the biggest cases of graft in Government are procurement re-
lated, so massive awareness about the practice was vital.
