Dominican Republic: CLDP Discusses Sustainable Public Procurement  

On April 20, CLDP, in coordination with the General Directorate for Public Contracting and the Organization of American States, organized a virtual webinar to discuss international best practices in sustainable public procurement. During the webinar, an international panel of experts shared regional and comparative views on sustainable procurement practices. The Dominican Republic (DR) is looking to incorporate a framework for sustainable procurement into their public procurement law to meet the government’s sustainability agenda. While the DR is a regional model for small business access, its laws are weak in addressing ecological and other areas of socioeconomic sustainable procurement, lacking cohesion and an all-of-government approach. The government hopes to resolve these deficiencies through modification of the procurement law. This activity is part of CLDP’s ongoing effort to socialize potential reforms of the DR’s public procurement law and solicit feedback from stakeholders.
