Country Procurement Profiles

Public Procurement System and e-GP Readiness Profiles

Under ADB’s Asia Pacific Procurement Partnership Initiative (APPI), ADB commissioned a Country Profile/e-GP Survey to evaluate the state of e-GP readiness and implementation in its developing member countries (DMCs). Using a multiple choice format, the Survey sought to capture basic information regarding (Part A) each country’s public procurement system including information regarding planned or ongoing initiatives; and (Part B) each country’s plans and initiatives related to implementation of e-Government Procurement, if applicable.  The last section (Part C) of the Survey was designed to be responded only by countries which have been already implementing a particular electronic procurement system.

A brief report on the submissions and the overview of the Survey findings (e.g. number of responding DMCs by region, Questionnaire parts completed, etc.) can be viewed by clicking on this link. A full analysis of the Survey responses can be viewed and downloaded in .pdf format by clicking on this link.

This webpage is intended as a dynamic database of country public procurement profiles that will house basic facts about each public procurement system of ADB developing member countries. This database, which will facilitate sharing of latest developments and practices with respect to public procurement in the region, will be updated on an as needed basis by the relevant public procurement authority (PPA) or government agency in charge of each participating country.

Relevant public procurement officials of ADB member countries are therefore encouraged to send an email to should there be a need to provide updates to their earlier submissions.
