Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) is an apex body for private sector organisations in the country.

It was incorporated in August 2003 under the Kenya Companies Act (Chapter 486 of the Laws of Kenya) as a company limited by guarantee.

The overall agenda of KEPSA is to provide "one voice" for the private sector to engage in public policy dialogue and hence influence public policy formulation. It therefore provides the framework for public-private partnership.

KEPSA membership comprises:

* Sector associations.
* Sector federations.
* Multi-sectoral thematic organisations.
* Corporate as support members.
