Module description:

E-Procurement is gradually evolving as an important tool in enhancing efficiency and fostering transparency and wider competition in public procurement operations. 

Currently, E-Procurement initiatives are constrained by a number of legal and oversight gaps in addition to scarcity of skills and capacity within governments at the human resources level. The real benefit of e-procurement lies not in the use of technology per se; E-Procurement can contribute significantly to the process of the transformation towards a leaner, more cost-effective government, it can enhance the speed and efficiency of public procurement by streamlining processes, lowering costs, and facilitating document retrieval and record-keeping.
The main objective of this module is to prepare the participants to play an active role in planning and implementing E-Procurement projects in their organizations and in the public sector in general.

- Understand basic concepts of E-Procurement, its potential and trends as well as practical issues to be dealt with in developed and developing countries
- Review diverse business models including e-Tendering, e-Auction, and e-Marketplace
- Understand e-procurement legal framework and technological infrastructure for E-Procurement implementation
- Understand project implementation aspects and operational and organizational impacts related to E-Procurement adoption, both in general terms and with particular reference to the participant’s own organization.
