OVERVIEW

The World Bank has been supporting the professionalization of public procurement to help strengthen the skills and competencies of practitioners and make the delivery of goods, services, and works to citizens more efficient.

In Afghanistan, the National Procurement Authority, through Civil Services Commission, has developed a Procurement Cadre Regulation and recruited about 1000 procurement staff. The National Procurement Institute has developed systematic training, certification, and accreditation of staff. This was part of the Fiscal Performance Support Project with support from the World Bank.

In Nigeria, the World Bank-funded Sustainable Procurement, Environmental and Social Standards Enhancement Project (SPESSE) is supporting six federal universities to graduate 21,240 students in Procurement, Environmental and Social Standards (PES). The project is also helping central government agencies to commence professionalization programs in PES.

it's a very good step from the World Bank to arrange the important topic discussion on strengthening the skills of procurement staff can play an important role in fighting corruption and building trust in government.

As Procurement is approximately a new field in Afghanistan, the qualified and capacity-built staff especially the public Procurement staff in government agencies is a must and required.
because procurement has a very important role in the efficient and effective consumption of the public budget which is the leading point for government development affairs.
As well we have witnessed that international donors are implementing a huge amount projects in Afghanistan, they have their own procurement regulation and rules, as these projects are implementing in Afghanistan in close coordination with government entities, thus it is essential to train and build the public procurement staff capacity by the international donors.

This session is quite interesting and I would love to take part in it. Your efforts in terms of providing opportunities for young procurement practitioners to learn and explore more about the procurement proceedings in the Challenging Environments of both developing countries. It paves way for the practitioners of both countries to learn from the experiences of each other and help in future proceedings. I'm sure this and other such sessions would contribute to the strengthening of the skills and competencies of practitioners involved in this field.
