New framework, usual cooperation
At the request of the African Development Bank, the Centre designed and successfully delivered four workshops aimed at developing the skills of the Bank’s officials and its Borrowers in the area of public procurement.
The AfDB’s new Procurement Framework is built on a vision of supporting Bank-financed operations and enhancing the procurement systems of the Bank’s Regional Member Countries in order for them to obtain good Value for Money, based on mutually supporting and reinforcing principles of economy, efficiency, effectiveness and equity.
During this training programme, an average of 100 AfDB staff members and AfDB Borrowers’ Representatives have been introduced to the key features of the new procurement policy, and the level of interest and satisfaction among participants was particularly high.
The latest workshop is currently taking place on campus.
