We are pleased to announce our next International Training Programme on 2016 Procurement Policy Framework for World Bank aided Projects which has been scheduled from February 07 -18, 2022 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 November 2020) 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.
