Drive performance improvements through evaluation of the effectiveness of the public procurement system from individual procurements to the system as a whole, at all levels of government where feasible and appropriate.
Assess periodically and consistently the results of the procurement process (on the basis of consistent, up-to-date and reliable information)
Develop indicators to measure performance, effectiveness and savings of the public procurement system
Challenges to public procurement related to evaluation include:
Public procurement data is not always collected in a robust and consistent manner; statistical information is consequently not accurate and reliable and cannot be used for future procurement decisions; and
Lack of performance measurement frameworks and indicators which impedes analysis of the effectiveness of the public procurement systems over time; and
Lack of performance assessments which can hinder the use of national public procurement systems by providers of development cooperation in order to implement external funds.
