The need for transparency and access to funding institutions to finance development projects brings a whole new dimension in the way public procurement should be done. Therefore, the procurement of goods, works and non-consultancy and consultancy services need to be aligned to the project procurement strategy for development (ppsd). The project procurement strategy for development (ppsd) is a methodology that is used to determine the optimum procurement approach to deliver the right procurement result. The ppsd will help identify critical success factors of the project and help the procurement department produce a well aligned and thought through procurement plan. The ppsd helps determine the right procurement approach that will yield the right type of response from the market. Going by the significance of resources controlled through borrowed funding for public procurement, this course will help participants explore in a short period of time key elements that would govern a successful bid for project funding and the success of the project itself as well as the risk rating of the project.

Officials from a wide array of public procurement, resources mobilization and management disciplines and implementing agents.
