Procurement in world bank investment project Financing

Phase ii: the new procurement framework

This paper presents a modernized Procurement Framework (Framework), with a recommendation for Board approval, following endorsement by the Committee on Development Effectiveness (CODE) and the Audit Committee (AC). The development of this Framework—a once-in-a-generation systematic reform and culture change—has been informed by extensive global consultations with governments, private sector, trade bodies, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s). Balancing the task of maintaining the Bank’s fiduciary assurance and delivering sustained development outcomes, the Framework reflects the agreed vision: "Procurement in Investment Project Financing supports clients to achieve value for money with integrity in delivering sustainable development."
