PCDC attends 4th Commonwealth Public Procurement Network (CPPN) Conference


The Commonwealth Secretariat in collaboration with the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Board (PPADB) of Botswana, hosted the Fourth Technical Conference of Procurement Practitioners in Commonwealth countries from 9 - 11 November 2009 in Gaborone, Botswana. The theme of the conference was Leadership and Innovation in Public Procurement.

The annual peer learning and thematic forum brought together heads of procurement regulatory and central tender boards, procurement board members and senior procurement officers in developing Commonwealth countries. The conference provided a unique platform for sharing emerging practices and country innovations in the regulation and management of public procurement.

Rasmus Jeppesen from the UN Procurement Capacity Development Centre (PCDC) participated in the conference and presented UNDP's approach to capacity development, as well as PCDC in terms of procurement capacity development and leadership.
