About the Procurement & Disposal Unit
Makerere University being a public institution is a procuring and disposal entity. It derives its mandate from the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Act PPDA 2003 (as amended) IN 2014. This PPDA Act is enforced by the Public Procurement and Disposal Authority which oversees and regulates procurement and disposal functions in Public entities.
