    • Knowledge sharing on effective approaches for reforming and improving public procurement systems and
    • Consolidating good practices, focusing on the whole procurement cycle, public procurement outcomes and its contributions to the strategic goals of public governance.
  • Contribute, with respect to public procurement, to:
    • The Public Governance Reviews, in the form of peer participation and the preparation of chapters
