Electronic Government Procurement (e-GP) systems have become an integral component of procurement reform for governments around the world as they move to institute efficient and transparent procurement systems that address issues of corruption.
These systems can deliver significant efficiency gains and financial savings for governments while enabling the provision of improved citizen services. The World Bank and all major donors are strong supporters of an e-GP roll-out.
