The World Bank’s Global Public Procurement Database (GPPD) captures data about country procurement and e-Procurement systems at a global level. The aim of the GPPD is to promote procurement reform and innovation through improved transparency and knowledge-sharing, by providing a publicly available online database of global public procurement information.
The GPPD is envisaged to become the one-stop online database of choice for the global public procurement community, where practitioners, government officials, academics, NGOs, industry, and other interested parties can access and share data and knowledge to better enable global public procurement reform and adoption of best practices.
The GPPD project outcomes are:
- To develop a comprehensive web-based tool which will capture diagnostic procurement-related information; such information is expected to form a common, worldwide standard for collecting and sharing information on public procurement, covering: a) governance, b) operations, c) ICT systems and d) results per country
- To generate demand for country procurement reforms and e-Procurement implementations to increase development outcomes;
- To provide appropriate channels for information dissemination and knowledge sharing, facilitating synergies between existing procurement communities.
The GPPD will enable public procurement stakeholders to perform efficiently, effectively, consistently and based on best practices. Furthermore, the GPPD will contribute to modernization and strengthening of public procurement systems worldwide.
