Ministry of Finance Kenya Pilot Phase – Leasing of Vehicles for Official Government Transport

Republic of Kenya
Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and Ministry of Finance
Request for Expressions of Interes
Pilot Phase – Leasing of Vehicles for Official Government Transport
Government transport services are important in facilitating movement of personnel as well as materials and equipment required in the course of delivery of public services. At present individual Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) procure and manage their own vehicle fleet and transport services to facilitate public service delivery. This mode of delivery has often been accompanied by increasing costs of transport services without commensurate improvements in service delivery.
Government is currently reviewing the manner in which official transport services are provided to ensure efficiency and cost effectiveness. As part of this review and efforts to deal with the challenges of providing official Government transport services, leasing of vehicles for Official Government Transport was announced in the FY 2010/11 Budget with implementation expected to commence in the same financial year.
The primary objectives for leasing will be to provide official Government transport in a manner that improves and expands public service delivery, achieves significant cost reductions and improves the efficiency and effectiveness of Government operations.
