Given the ever-changing and the increasing role of the procurement function both nationally and internationally, it is necessary to have a continuous curriculum review process to match the ever-changing role of the procurement function.
There has been a growing demand for procurement personnel at an operational level in recent years in Uganda. It is believed that this course will facilitate the filling of this gap in this respect by giving chance to various persons to acquire the necessary skills.
With the alignment of the curriculum, there has been an introduction of the bachelors/Diploma/ Masters degrees, thereby creating a need for demarcating the borders for each category to avoid overlap.
The programme shall target the students with ‘A’ Level Certificates, Diploma holders in other fields, Degree holders, Certificate holders, from recognised institutions of higher learning and persons who have passed Mature Age Examination and those already engaged in the procurement function and would like to improve their competencies
