On July 18-22, 2016, CLDP will conduct its 3rd joint Third-Country Training Program (TCTP) course with Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Civil Service College on Public Procurement. While most countries in Southeast Asia have public procurement laws on the books, the majority struggle to implement the laws evenly across all government. At the same time, some of the faster developing economies are looking to implement e-procurement and framework agreements in the next iterations of their laws. E-procurement, when implemented comprehensively, is an effective method of increasing transparency in procurement and lessening corruption. The participants will learn about best practices in public procurement, including e-procurement, framework agreements, best value, and contract management.
