Who we are and what is our goal
The Global Procurement Partnership (GPP) MDTF is a seven-year program that aims to advance worldwide and country-level procurement reforms, increase coordination and maximize impact. The GPP MDTF seeks to contribute to this overall objective through (i) global standards and models that lead to modern, effective, and transparent procurement systems; (ii) development of country capacities for better procurement systems; and (iii) systematized learning and research on the impact of effective procurement reform approaches.
The GPP MDTF provides the World Bank and its partners the space to initiate conversations on public procurement’s key role in spurring better development outcomes for a country. It promotes a global dialogue on the value of well-functioning procurement systems by supporting enhanced donor coordination, responsible innovation, and evidence-based research.
How the program emerged: Tackling a global challenge
How we work
- Window 1 embraces the development of global public goods – tools that can be adapted broadly and create standards that meet the needs of a wide range of countries.
- Window 2 supports the improvement of procurement systems by identifying challenges and indicating recommendations for reform actions through detailed diagnostics.
- Window 3 promotes systematic and evidence-based research on the impact of effective reform approaches.
The three windows were designed for a strong distribution of support to some of the poorest countries and fragile and conflict-affected states in a variety of areas that range from professionalization to citizen engagement.
