Ahead of the framework’s implementation starting July 2016, Mr. de Laurentiis highlighted some of the key features of the new framework (which will be effective July 1, 2016), including value-for-money as the overriding objective, alternative procurement arrangements, hands-on implementation support to Borrowers, contract management, and an enhanced complaints handling system. He also addressed company questions and concerns on harmonizing procurement practices with other MDBs, procurement selection methods, payments, and the complaints mechanism.
