The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), a consortium of 85 Universities in 35 African countries is focused on training the next generation of scientists in Africa. RUFORUM seeks to realise vibrant transformative universities to catalyse sustainable inclusive agricultural development to feed and create prosperity for Africa. RUFORUM’s core commitments relate to transformative student education and learning, research excellence and impact, community engagement, enhancing innovation and creating opportunities, knowledge generation and sharing, and support to policy dialogue and reform.
In executing these commitments to realize its vision and mission, RUFORUM works in partnership with several development partners and actors in high agricultural education. Thus, in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation, RUFORUM is implementing the “Transforming African Agricultural Universities to meaningfully contribute to Africa’s growth and development (TAGDev)” project. The project seeks to transform African agricultural universities and their graduates to better respond to developmental challenges through enhanced application of science, technology, business and innovation for rural agricultural transformation. RUFORUM wishes to procure quality laptops through a reputable firm to service the students under the TAGDev scholarship program. This procurement has been opened through a National bidding process.
