  • WB has supported MoF, through an NLTA, to work towards a strategy to promote e-GP in central ministries.

  • WB funded eBharat project is designed to address comprehensively the core issues relating to application of e-GP nation wide. Work has started in 3 states and central Health Ministry.

  • Afghanistan Reconstruction Development Services (ARDS) PU is the central agency to facilitate procurement services across the country.

  • Public Procurement Law supports e-GP.

  • ARDS introduced IT-based Vendor Registration System more than 3 years back. It decided to expand the facility by introducing a user friendly, interactive and dynamic website on ARDS PU (, leading to e-GP in 3 phases.

  • Daily average of ARDS website visitor: 80

  • Maximum Bid Documents for any project downloaded : 90

Fiduciary Forum


  • Lessons Learned:

  • Given the administrative/political structure of India, any eGP strategy needs to be evolutionary and include elements of capacity building at various levels of government as well as integration with ovearll PFM structures, which makes the task very challenging.

  • Private sector has an important role to play.

Fiduciary Forum


  • Current status:

  • GoP has carried out an assessment of its readiness at the federal level. Report yet to be finalized. GoP intends to seek Bank’s assistance in the way forward.

  • E-GP readiness assessment is planned for Punjab.

  • services.

  • Initial E-GP Readiness Assessment was done in 2005. A detailed

  • assessment will be done under the proposed Public Financial Mgmt and

  • Statistical Capacity Building project.

  • E-GP is proposed to be introduced in phases, to begin with:

  • Interactive single portal

  • Online appointment of TECs, and monitoring

Fiduciary Forum


  • Nepal:

  • An e-GP Readiness Assessment was done in FY 07 and an Implementation Strategy has been developed in conformity with the overall procurement reform program.

  • Nepal already has an e-GP system in place, which has not been used because of capacity and skill constraint.

  • The Department of Roads (DOR) e-GP system has been allowed for pilot under a Bank funded Project, following an assessment.

  • Based on the result of the DOR pilot, comprehensive efforts will be made to functionalize the existing country e-GP system, with the Bank’s assistance.
