This $4 million hybrid project aims to support greater transparency, accountability and effectiveness of public procurement. The project is planned in two stages, the first of which will include a WBG-executed technical assistance grant of $0.4 million and a recipient-executed grant of $1.6 million.

The first stage of the project will support regulatory and institutional reforms to help align public procurement legislation and practices to the Zimbabwe’s 2013 Constitution, and to prepare for implementing an e-government procurement pilot. A second grant of $2 million will be used to implement the e-procurement pilot.  

The project will be implemented by the Office of the President and Cabinet in collaboration with the State Procurement Board. Within the WBG, this program is supported by the Governance Global Practice.
