Multilateral Development Banks Launch Joint Tool To Assess Country Electronic Government Procurement (eGP) Systems

The Heads of Procurement of the Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) have collaboratively developed a comprehensive and user-friendly tool for assessing electronic government procurement (e-GP) systems of partner countries. This tool is specifically designed for considering the procurement of Goods, Works, or Services contracts, financed by MDBs, through e-GP systems. 

By introducing a structured and standardized approach, it aims to determine whether e-GP systems meet the minimum requirements set forth by MDBs for its effective use.

This assessment tool conducts a thorough review of procurement policies, procedures, and practices to ensure compliance. It enables MDBs to evaluate whether an e-GP system fulfills all necessary criteria or if additional requirements and restrictions are warranted. For broader reform initiatives, this tool is ideally complemented by the MAPS e-GP supplementary module.

The effective utilization of e-GP systems is critical for enhancing transparency, credibility, and efficiency of the procurement process but also elevates the procurement function to a strategic level. By consolidating procurement-related data and offering comprehensive insights, e-GP systems empower decision-makers in project preparation and delivery.
