Appendix 1: Review by the Bank of Procurement Decisions
Appendix 2: Domestic Preference
Appendix 3: Guidance to Bidders
(a) the need for economy and efficiency in the implementation of the project, including the procurement of the goods and works involved;
(b) the Bank’s interest in giving all eligible bidders from developed and developing countries the same information and equal opportunity to compete;
(c) the Bank’s interest in encouraging the development of domestic contracting and manufacturing industries in the borrowing country; and
(d) the importance of transparency in the procurement process.
1.12 The Bank does not finance expenditures for goods and works which have not been procured in accordance with the agreed provisions in the Loan Agreement and as further elaborated in the Procurement Plan. In such cases, the Bank will declare misprocurement, and it is the policy of the Bank to cancel that portion of the loan allocated to the goods and works that have been misprocured. The Bank may, in addition, exercise other remedies provided for under the Loan Agreement. Even once the contract is awarded after obtaining a “no objection” from the Bank, the Bank may still declare misprocurement if it concludes that the “no objection” was issued on the basis of incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading information furnished by the Borrower or the terms and conditions of the contract had been modified without Bank’s approval.
Fraud and Corruption
1.14 It is the Bank’s policy to require that Borrowers (including beneficiaries of Bank loans), as well as bidders, suppliers and contractors under Bank financed contracts, observe the highest standards of ethics during procurement and execution of such contracts. In pursuance to this policy, the Bank:
(a) defines the terms (i) corrupt practice; (ii) fraudulent practice; (iii) collusive practices; and (iv) coercive practices;
(b) will reject a proposal for award if it determines that the bidder recommended for award has engaged, directly or through an agent, in any of the above practices;
(c) will cancel the portion of the loan allocated to a contract if it determines engagement in any of the above practices;
(d) will sanction a firm or individual, including declaring ineligible, either indefinitely or for a stated period of time, to be awarded a Bank-financed contract, if at any time it determines that the firm has engaged in the above practices; and
(e) will have the right to require that a provision be included in bidding documents and contracts to permit inspection and audit of documents relating to bid submission and contract performance.

The Procurement Plan is…..
(a) not to have it at all;
(b) use a system of declaration (new tool);
(c) to use in form defined in Bid Docs (Issued by Bank or Security Institution).
1. name of the bidder,
2. total amount of each bid, and
3. any alternative bids if they have been requested or permitted.
(a) meet the eligibility requirements
(b) have been properly signed
(c) are accompanied by the required securities or required declaration signed
(d) are substantially responsive to the bidding documents, and
(e) are otherwise generally in order.
(a) goods manufactured in the country of the Borrower when comparing bids offering such goods with those offering goods manufactured abroad; and
(b) works in member countries below a specified threshold of GNP per capita, when comparing bids from eligible domestic Contractors with those from foreign firms.
The Borrower shall seek the Bank’s no objection (except in cases of extreme urgency) for modifications to contracts subject to prior review, which would in aggregate increase the original amount of the contract by more than 15 percent of the original price.
If a contract awarded under ICB procedures is subject to prior-review and is in the national language, a certified translation of the contract in the internationally used language specified in the bidding documents shall be furnished to the Bank together with the conformed copy of the contract
For comparison, bids shall be classified as:
Preference for Domestically Manufactured Goods
Preference for Domestic Contractors
