ICGFM forum - March, 6 2008. Current Trends in International Public Sector Procurement and their impact on Financial Management Jorge Claro, President Claro & Associates, Inc. Background.
The mechanisms are being introduced in many countries at a very different pace and corresponding to very different strategies
Procurement reform should not be undertaken in isolation but rather in a broader and participatory context and as an integral part of the reform of the state process
Reforms should be guided by a national strategy that considers the procedural, financial and managerial dimensions of a reform
Introducing these mechanisms can have long-term effects on domestic markets, with financial and administrative implications
