In order to apply for government tenders online in Kenya, you need the following;

  1. Tender Negotiation Number
  2. An IFMIS Active Account

Getting Tender Negotiation Number

To get tender negotiation number, go to www.tenders.go.ke .

On the top menu, click on tenders. On the dropdown, select ‘active tenders.’

Skim through active tenders there within your category and click view. On the new window click on view again. This will open a preview of the tender.

Look for one with a negotiation number. Most of the government institutions and county government tenders have a negotiation number.

As for this example, I have found one from the county government with a negotiation number.

Download, fill the tender and put together all the documents needed as attachment in one folder ready to submit. 

Tender Submission On IFMIS

You need an IFMIS account to file your tender. If you don’t have one already, you can sign up on the portal www.supplier.treasury.go.ke

Fill in the required details to sign up.

Once done, login to your account to submit your Tender application. This is where the negotiation number you picked earlier in the tender document will come into play.

On the right side of the page, you will see menu and below it there is a folder named sourcing supplier.

Click on it to open the dropdown. Under the sourcing folder click on sourcing homepage.

You will be taken to this page here. On top you can see number then a box to the left as you can see below.

Paste the negotiation number on the box and click on go. You will be take to this page here where you will see the tender. Click on the number again to open.
