Business Computer Services Limited (BCS) last week donated K2 million in support of the Malawi Institute of Procurement and Supply’s (Mips) annual lakeshore conference.
The three-day conference which ends on Sunday was held under the theme: Strategic procurement and supply chain management: Tool for the attainment of Malawi’s economic development and growth.
Speaking during the cheque presentation, BCS business development manager Chimwemwe Chimwaza said the company appreciates the role procurement and suppliers play in national development.
“We expect this year’s event to help the procurement industry to be well regulated and standardised by pulling in various stakeholders to make sure that procurement and supply practices in the country are improving,” he said.
In her remarks, one of the officials from Mips Bernadette Maele hailed BCS for the donation saying it will go a long way in supporting activities at the conference.
“This year’s conference focuses on the attainment of economic development and growth during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Most companies are facing financial challenges due to the pandemic and our core duty is to reduce costs in the process of acquiring goods and services in organisations,” says Maele.
