E-Procurement Forum: Enhancing Public Spending
December 1-3, 2015VIENNA, AUSTRIA

The World Bank is hosting an e-Procurement Forum jointly with EBRD in Vienna from December 1-3, 2015. The theme of the Forum is “Using E-Procurement Data to Measure the Transparency and Performance of Public Spending”.

The main objective of the Forum is to provide an opportunity to public procurement agencies from participating countries in the Europe and Central Asia region to share their experiences and practices in E-Procurement, with a special focus on E-Procurement data and their use, for benchmarking public procurement based on procurement-related indicators and open contracting standards.

It is also planned to include examples from outside the Europe & Central Asia region. The Forum will also give participants the opportunity to explore ways and means of regional cooperation in this area and to seek active involvement of international and bilateral donors in the efforts of the governments to further improve E-Procurement implementation as well as transparency, economy and efficiency aspects of public expenditure.
