E-Procurement Learning (Self-Paced)

E-Procurement Learning (Self-Paced)

E-Government procurement (e-GP) projects are often part of the wider e-government efforts of countries to efficiently and effectively serve their citizens and businesses. E-GP promotes better governance in public procurement by increasing transparency and eliminating opportunities for fraud and corruption. The application of ICT to procurement processes has resulted in e-Procurement platforms that are ideally suited to address the e-GP objectives.

Pursuing an e-Procurement system implementation is an effective way to improve public procurement management, through the automation of all underlying processes. Many governments worldwide have adopted end-to-end e-Procurement systems which cover the full procurement cycle.

The current e-Learning course is composed of five modules, aiming to assist its audience to better understand electronic procurement and provide them with guidance on decisions they may need to take for establishing or improving the e-GP framework of their countries.

The course initially focuses on how organizations can establish a plan for an e-GP implementation, and what benefits can be expected by such an implementation project. Furthermore it provides an overview of the basic and advanced features and modules of e-Procurement systems, along with concise information on how to implement each of the described e-Procurement modules.

Additionally, the course briefly describes e-Procurement indicators and presents how these can be used by governments in order to measure adoption, performance and overall governance. Lastly, it focuses on how to incorporate procurement and e-procurement into FMIS implementations in the context of PFM reform projects.

At the end of this course, a certification can be obtained by those participants who complete the course and successfully pass the respective examination.

Though the course is good, it is based mainly on EU directives. Off course, it is useful however if WBI can come up with Similar Course matching the basics as per continent to be specific with Asia , it will be of great interest.

Hello everyone. I am Md. Nuruzzaman and I'm from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I have enrolled in e-Procurement and I am doing it in self-paced mode. The fonts displayed in the course are not readable. The font size surely needs to enlarged for better readability. There are are enough space around. So, I don't understand why the fonts are so small? Would anyone please look into this matter? Thanks, Md. Nuruzzaman
