Public procurement goes beyond purchasing items. It is the way governments can materialise their policies and objectives. With the more pressing than ever need to spend better, governments must make sure their procurement systems are supported by sound policy, institutional, market and integrity frameworks.
The Methodology for Assessing Procurement Systems (MAPS) is the universal tool to diagnose and plan procurement reforms, and ultimately improve how contracting is carried out.
This webinar will provide an overview of the methodology and present its Secretariat. Through listening to real cases across the world, participants will learn about the impact a MAPS assessment can bring, as well as discuss issues, challenges and key elements to bear in mind when carrying out an assessment. This event will also focus on the two newest tools in the MAPS suite: the Sustainable Public Procurement and Professionalisation supplementary modules.
