The Government Procurement Services Agency (GPSA) now has a new ministerial advisory board, TPJ has learnt.
The six-member board was inaugurated in Dar es Salaam recently by the Deputy Minister for Finance and Planning, Dr. Ashatu Kijaji, who urged it to facilitate attainment of government goals by devising measures of controlling misuse of public funds.
 “Previously, a car costing 40m/- would be purchased at 80m/-. We do not want such cases to happen again. It’s your role now to restore trust to the public on the use of public funds,’’ noted the deputy minister, referring to the situation before GPSA introduced bulk procurement of vehicles.
Chaired by Prof. Palamagamba Kabudi, the new board which also includes Dr. Frederick Mwakibinga, Dr. Dalmas Nyaoro, Ms. Elizabeth  Nyambibo, Mr. Sebastian Ndandala and Mr. Sixbert Qamdiyei, heard the Acting Chief Executive Officer of GPSA,  Mr. Jacob Kibona, informing the deputy minister that the Agency had from 2014/15 financial year, enabled the Government to save 382m/- through that method when it procured 433 vehicles and 40 motorcycles for 88 public institutions.
Mr. Kibona said GPSA plans to put up its warehouses and petrol stations in Geita, Njombe, Katavi and Simiyu regions, saying the Agency had already acquired plots in the regions to carry out the projects.
‘’The goal to construct the facilities is to improve GPSA activities and hence serve public institutions in the regions efficiently,’’ he said and pointed out that substandard goods in the local market was a major challenge as public institutions sometimes failed to distinguish between standard and sub-standard goods.
