Strengthening procurement systems and the capacity of our partners to achieve measurable improvements and greater accountability in public expenditure
Building on over 180 years of history, we design, implement, and advise on public procurement programs. We act as procurement agents and advisors in accordance with U.S. Government regulations, World Bank policies and procedures, and international best practices. We put in place systems that generate open competition, transparency, accountability, and value for money. And we enhance sustainability of these systems through training in best practices, and policy and regulation reform for countries around the world.
We are one of the world’s leading procurement specialists, with decades of experience in providing procurement support, training, and capacity development to a diverse range of clients, including ministries, international agencies, foundations, and other private organizations.
Our work supports the transformation of public procurement, strengthens the capacity of our partners, and professionalizes supply chain and procurement to achieve measurable improvements and greater accountability in public expenditure.

- Procurement System Strengthening — legislative reform, transactional procurement and fiscal support, and institutional restructuring.
- Capacity Development — capacity diagnostic review, action planning, implementation of customized training modules in subjects ranging from tender design to procurement audit.
- E-Procurement Modernization and Improvement — e-readiness assessments incorporating enabling environment analysis, and e-procurement sensitization and capacity enhancement.
