I started in supply chain back when I did procurement, logistics and contract management for a small Oil and Gas Exploration company working in Nairobi. We supported operations in Northern Kenya, South Sudan and Ethiopia. I have dabbled a bit in donor funded projects at the Ministry of Finance in Kenya under Global Fund (for HIV, TB and Malaria) and also taken on similar tasks with World Bank donor funded portfolios with Ministries in South Sudan.
Have over time learnt and been exposed to a number of procurement procedures, guidelines and regulations – World Bank, the Global Fund, USAID, Public Procurement Disposals Act 2005 of Kenya and regulations 2006.
As a self study CIPS (UK) student i am able to share tips, experiences and insight to make your CIPS experience as interesting as mine. I started at Level 4, completed Level 5 and now have one paper left for Level 6 which i intend to write in July 2016.
I am the newly elected Africa Students Representative for CIPS (UK) Congress a term which will run from 1 November 2015 to 31 October 2018. Please share with me your challenges as a CIPS student in Africa?
