Definition Edit

Public procurement (also called government procurement) is the process by which a government agency purchases goods and services from the private sector.

Overview Edit

The procurement processes covers two main phases: the pre-award phase and the post award phase. Pre-award comprises all the sub-phases of procurement until the award of the contract (publication of notices, access to tender documents, submission of bids, evaluation of the proposals and the award of the contract). Post-award comprises all the sub-phases of procurement after the award of the contract (ordering, invoicing and payment).[1]
