ABSTRACT

Participation of Special Interest Groups in Public procurement is an important function of any government for several reasons. First, the sheer magnitude of Special interest Groups in procurement outlays has a great impact on the economy and needs to be well managed. Indeed, in all countries in the world, estimates of the financial activities of government procurement by the youth are believed to be in the order of 10% – 30 % of GNP.  Execution of the directive of the Government to set aside 30% of all public entities procurement spend within a given financial year for youth, persons with disability and women is a growing challenge. In the recent past, governments have sought to reduce the ever-increasing unemployment levels by offering to assist young people and the disadvantaged with startup capital. Many governments have established funds targeting women entrepreneurs and the youth because they are often left out of the economic mainstream and most disadvantaged when it comes to accessing startup capital or loans from the existing financial infrastructure. The general objective of this study is to examine the challenges affecting the implementation of access to government procurement opportunities for Special Interest groups in Kenya: a case of Nairobi County. Implementation of the AGPO was regressed against four variables of legal framework, Funding, Training and access to information.
