In order to improve the procurement process and expedite the implementation of development projects, ESAMI in collaboration with the World Bank, has designed a series of procurement training programmes covering:
- Works Procurement and the Selection of Consultants
- Goods and Equipment Procurement.
This program is a follow up to the Basic Goods and Equipment course given earlier. It is assumed that participants are familiar with the World Bank Procurement Guidelines and the Standard Bidding documents for Goods as these will only be reviewed briefly. In line with the Basic Course, the program is based on world Bank procurement Guidelines, procedures and documentation as a benchmark of internationally accepted 'good' procurement.
HOW PARTICIPANTS WILL BENEFIT
At the end of the course participants will be able to:
- Handle large scale projects in the power/energy, telecommunications, power
transmission, water sector, etc, which are characterized by part works and part
equipment on single responsibility basis.
- Interpret World Bank Standard Bidding Documents related to Goods and
Equipment including the Guidelines for Goods and Works, Prequalification
Document, SBD Goods and SBD Supply and Install and Standard Bid Evaluation
