Procurement under World Bank-financed projects : FY05 annual report (English)

The FY98 Procurement Strategy set four objectives that still guide the efforts of the Procurement Sector: (a) improve fiduciary compliance by placing greater emphasis on upfront project work and strengthening post reviews, (b) increase the focus on the development impact of procurement in order to build clients' capacity and help them establish sound procurement systems, (c) strengthen the Bank's internal capacity to manage the procurement function, and (d) enhance partnerships and improve outreach. This report, the sixth annual measure of progress against these objectives, focuses on advances in the quality of implementation and discusses the FY05 roll out of new products. New Guidelines for the procurement of goods and works and for selection of consultants were issued in May 2004 as part of the simplification and modernization initiative undertaken by the Operations Policy and Country Services Unit. The new Guidelines set the course for much of FY05 work because they required that the full range of bidding documents, manuals, and training materials be updated; that Bank staff be trained on the new products and policies; and that the changes be communicated effectively to partner countries. Also in FY05, new products were introduced to improve impact, effectiveness, and monitoring of results in support of capacity development and public procurement reforms in partner countries. Following the introduction, Section 2 discusses FY05 project- and region-specific activities across the Bank's six Regions-Africa, East Asia and Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and South Asia. Section 3 examines Procurement Sector perspectives with respect to staffing, policies and tools, harmonization, and institutional initiatives.
