Community participation in procurement

2012-10-25

'The Government Procurement Policy Board (GPBB) is piloting community participation in local government procurement in 12 municipalities.'

 

'The project aims to harmonize the community based procurement practices and experiences of the KALAHI-CIDSS project with the community-participation provision in the Government Procurement Reform Act (GPRA) of 2003.

 

' "We will see if we can use the system without going against the provisions of GPRA. We will let the community participate by identifying projects of the government," Ms. Yan said in an interview here last week.'
