Public Procurement forms a significant part of any country’s spending by the Government. In the region, it ranges from US $ 300 B in India to US $ 3 B in Bangladesh. To ensure that this money is spent properly in a transparent manner, most Governments in the region have enacted Procurement laws or are in the process of enacting one. Such Acts are expected to improve the quality of procurement. World Bank’s endeavour with this course is to enable officials involved in public procurement to be trained to work effectively in such an environment. The overall aim of the program is to impart required knowledge and skills to undertake effective procurement using best in class practices.
