Public procurement management is a cornerstone of good governance.

It cuts across all economic sectors and constitutes 15–30 per cent of the gross domestic product in most countries, hence its significance for enhancing market competitiveness and sustainable development. Setting up effective national public procurement systems has often been a challenge, not least because of a deficit in competent human resources and the need to keep up to date with the ever-increasing complexity of the legal framework, the globalization of markets, and sophisticated contractual and tendering systems.
