The legal requirement for women, youth and persons with disabilities to access 30% of Government Procurement opportunities is being implemented within the context of the AGPO program

The Access to Government Procurement Opportunities (AGPO) program is founded on the the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 Article 227 on the fair equitable, transparent and cost-effective public procurement of goods and services, the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 Article 55 on affirmative action and the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act, 2015.

The aim of the AGPO program is to facilitate the enterprises owned by women, youth and persons with disability to be able to participate in Government opportunities. This is will be made possible through the implementation of the legal requirement that 30% of Government procurement opportunities be set aside specifically for enterprises owned by these groups. As a result, the program is aimed at empowering them by giving them more opportunities to do business with Government.
