Message from the Chairman

Procurement And Supply Chain Students Association (PSSA) is one of the students’ associations graced by the department of management science in the school of business. Procurement has gained importance over years and this has led to the separation of this discipline form the larger management science.

This association was registered in 2011 by Mr Kennedy Kamande who was the chairman then. From 2011 it has registered many achievements. The association has been able to hold career talks, exhibitions, and industrial trip, which have been of a big importance to the members.

Procurement as a field of business is a compulsory component of any business. In Kenya it is governed by the Public Procurement and Disposal Act 2005. There are various bodies in Kenya that have been mandated with overseeing the procurement activities. Such bodies include the Public Procurement Oversight Authority (PPOA) and the Kenya Institute of Supplies Management (KISM).
