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 self-assessment exercises, individual and group assignments intended to facilitate the practical application of IFIs’ guidelines. Solution and analysis of case studies is emphasised as a principal technique for measurement of learning achievement and attainment of prescribed exit competencies. Individual guidance is provided, upon request, to help participants to troubleshoot procurement-related problems on their projects.
Each participant is encouraged to bring along a copy of the Loan Agreement, the Project Procurement Strategy for Development and a “Request for Proposal” document related to his/her project for reference throughout the course.
