Procurement Framework for Project Staff Course


INTRODUCTION

Procurement function has become professionalized. In the recent years, procurement competency frameworks have begun to emerge and procurement professionals are required to have the requisite procurement body of knowledge and skills. At the same time, the function has been evolving and now requires both specialized knowledge and skills in procurement but also a broad appreciation of the various fields that link with procurement function. Equally, many areas that consume the services of procurement specialists need to understand how procurement works and its significance in supporting timely completion of development projects that are fit for purpose and that deliver value for money. Investment project financing regulations rolled out by the world bank after June 2016 require that all projects funded after that date comply with these regulations. A clear understanding of the provisions under the regulations is an important aspect for project teams. This course is based on the world bank procurement framework and regulations for projects after July 1, 2016.  This course aims at enhancing the capacity of project teams implementing development projects funded by the world bank to assess user needs and effectively undertake procurement processes in accordance with the July 2016 world bank procurement framework and regulations.
