Dominican Republic: CLDP Leads Workshop on Contract Administration

September 6, 2018 - September 7, 2018

On September 6-7 in Santo Domingo, CLDP, in coordination with the Dominican General Directorate for Public Contracting (DGCP), led a government procurement workshop on contract administration for more than 60 contracting officials from various government agencies. To deliver the workshop, CLDP called upon the expertise of a Department of Commerce contracts attorney and a Department of Veterans Affairs procurement analyst. This workshop came as a response to a specific request by the DGCP to cover standards of conduct for contracting officers, monitoring a contractor’s performance, contract disputes, remedies, and best practices in contract closeout. This workshop marked the conclusion of CLDP’s first two-year project to improve the efficiency of government procurement practices in the Dominican Republic. The project was recently extended by USAID Dominican Republic for another two years.
