In support of the project, the Ministry of Finance availed funding to the tune of N$550 000.

Penda Ithindi, an Economic Advisor from the Ministry highlighted that the cash injection would be utilised for the conceptualisation, curriculum and course content development. “The assortment of skills to be acquired through this targeted programme resonates well with the national objectives of human capacity development in general and specific skills in public procurement management in particular,” he said.

The programmes comprise of a certificate; an advanced Diploma; a Bachelor Degree; and a Postgraduate Diploma in Procurement Management.
“Institutions of higher learning have the collective responsibility to provide capacity building through research, innovation and offering courses that are relevant,” NUST Vice-Chancellor, Dr Erold Naomab emphasised.

Secondly, we are creating a career path for them to progress where ever they set sail,” Prof Kenneth Matengu, the UNAM Vice-Chancellor elaborated.
