CLDP Conducts Policy Roundtable on Managing Professionalization Programs

On June 1, CLDP, in collaboration with the Peruvian Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF), the Supervisory Body for Public Contracting (OSCE) and the National Authority for the Civil Service (SERVIR) organized a roundtable on best practices in managing professionalization programs. During the session, CLDP and its intermittent expert, a former professor of the Defense Acquisition University (DAU), provided an overview of the critical elements of an effective professionalization program such as a specialized career path and robust evaluation mechanisms. The session was the first opportunity that three Peruvian agencies have had to discuss professionalization strategies and resulted in an agreement by the lead agency, DGA, to organize working groups to develop Peru’s professionalization strategy. This session is part CLDP’s efforts to address gaps in Peru’s procurement system, which relies on a work force that suffers from inadequate training, constant turnover, and limited autonomy to make procurement decisions.
