Procurement and procurement reform

 

An effective and transparent public and private procurement system, underpinned by sound legislation, institutional structure and organisational capacity, is the cornerstone for any public or private expenditure management framework.

 

Public procurement accounts for over 50% of GDP in many of our clients developing countries and this figure can be considerably higher in countries where the private sector is small and the delivery of services is generally undertaken by the public sector.

 

The agenda for public procurement reform has been driven by a number of factors including the need to achieve value for money in the delivery of basic services as well as greater accountability to tax payers; the reduction of corruption and malpractice and also to deliver more effective aid.
