Procurement Policy Review: Consultations
- Multistakeholder Consultation:May 01, 2012 to February 28, 2013
The first phase of the World Bank's review of its operational procurement policy and procedures led to a Proposed New Framework for Procurement in World Bank Investment Operations. This paper was endorsed by Executive Directors of the World Bank Group on November 15, 2013. The review team consulted with about 2,000 stakeholders from 96 countries between May 2012 and February 2013. To see the executive summary of all feedback received during the consultations see here. More feedback summaries available: by region, comments submitted online (PDF), and written statements sent by email (PDF).
Input from consultations, International Advisory Group on Procurement, World Bank staff, and thematic background studies from Phase 1 of the review suggests clearly that World Bank procurement should be guided by an approach that reflects complexity and diversity, value for money, and fit for purpose. Key inputs from the consultations and a few proposed central points for moving forward toward a new policy framework are available in this brief summary.
