Documentation l Presentations

 

 Background

 

Promoting transparency and accountability are prerequisites for safeguarding integrity and preventing fraud and corruption in public procurement. E-procurement is recognised as a strategic policy instrument to provide goods and services that meet the needs of society and economy. Accordingly, MENA and OECD countries have launched important reforms to modernize public procurement and embed e-procurement in public financial management, anti-corruption policies and e-government strategies.
 
This high level seminar gathered together experts in Rome on the 17-18 June 2010 to address the following 6 main themes:

  • E-Procurement: the role of ICT in supporting integrity and efficiency in MENA countries
  • Preventing corruption in procurement
  • Quality and efficiency in procurement
  • E-Procurement systems and applications: lessons learned and new challenges
  • Building capacities and enhancing professionalism and integrity to design and implement e-procurement systems 
  • Integrity and e-procurement: the way ahead
