After the success of the ONLINE edition of our flagship program during FY 2020-21, we are pleased to announce our next ONLINE International Training Program on 2016 Procurement Policy Framework for World Bank aided Projects which has been scheduled from July 5 – 16, 2021 in partnership with Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI) and with technical support from the World Bank.
As you would be aware that the World Bank has introduced its New Procurement Policy and Regulations effective from July 1, 2016 (revised in August 2018) as applicable for all projects that are financed by the Bank after July 2016. The major revision has been done after a gap of almost 20 years and the core principles of the procurement in Bank funded projects have been expanded to include the principles of Value for Money, Integrity and Fit for Purpose in addition to Economy, Efficiency, Transparency and Fairness. This training will cover the new procurement policy and regulations, PPSD preparation and standard procurement documents along with various options available.
The World Bank encourages the dissemination of its relevant policy framework and usage of revised standard procurement documents in its funded projects. It is possible to get funding for attending this programme under the technical assistance or the capacity building component of the projects. Interested officials or their project heads are encouraged to contact their funding organization for further details.
We solicit nomination of officials who are working in the World Bank aided projects (either directly with the project or in implementing agencies or with the concerned ministries) or officials from organizations managing/ implementing other donor aided projects and others interested in bidding for World Bank financed projects to attend the program. Nomination of a group of four or more officials from the same organization shall qualify for a 10% discount on the programme fee. We are sure that the participating officers/ executives will immensely benefit by attending the program as enunciated by a few thousand officials who attended the physical programs in the past.
