The World Bank launched the Global Public Procurement Database (GPPD) – the world’s first database dedicated to the collection of country-specific public procurement information for every country in the world. 

The GPPD is a World Bank initiative with the objective of meeting the increasing demand, from both the public and the private sectors, for a comprehensive global knowledge product that captures data about country procurement systems and country eProcurement implementations at a global level.

In addition to a presentation and launch of the GPPD, we hosted a panel of global procurement leaders to lead a discussion of how better to attract SMEs to Government Procurement.

Public Spend Forum is proud to host the GPPD launch event, on behalf of the World Bank.
