Format and Methodology
The course is delivered by senior procurement advisors and consultants from the World Bank and ITCILO. The course is conducted using a highly participative training delivery methodology through a combination of interactive
presentations by subject-matter specialists followed by plenary discussions. Individual and group assignments are used
extensively in order to demonstrate in practice the proper application of IFIs’ guidelines and to enable measurement
of participants’ learning achievement. Solution and analysis of case studies are emphasised as principal techniques for
acquisition of new knowledge and attainment of prescribed exit competencies.
Individual guidance is provided, upon request, to help participants to troubleshoot procurement-related problems on
their own projects.
Each participant is encouraged to bring along a copy of the Loan Agreement, of the Project Procurement Strategy
for Development Document and a Standard Procurement Document related to his/her project for reference throughout the course.
