Leading Practitioners on Public Procurement

 

11-12 February 2013

Paris, France   

 

Background

Public Procurement represents between 13% and 20% of GDP on average worldwide; thereby having a significant impact on public funds allocation and economic growth.  Ensuring an efficient and effective public procurement system is a key reform agenda in many countries. In times of austerity, procurement can help save funds and gain fiscal space for reforms when managed effectively and strategically. It is also increasingly recognised as a potential instrument for achieving social and environmental objectives. Despite its economic significance, public procurement is still often handled as an administrative, compliance-oriented process rather than a strategic function of government.

 

Objectives

The launch meeting of the Leading Practitioners on Public Procurement provides a global view of leading procurement practice through knowledge sharing on effective approaches to strengthening public procurement systems and transforming procurement into a strategic function. This launching meeting responds to the 2012 OECD Council request to update the OECD Recommendation on Enhancing Integrity in Public Procurement. For more information please view the meeting agenda.
