AbstractOver the last decade Morocco has made important strides in responding to citizen demands for more transparency, accountability, and shared prosperity. This has also extended into the public sector and its varied functions. In Morocco public contracts account for some 17 percent of GDP and are responsible for critical activities in the economy, including delivery of key public services.2 Given its important role, the Government of Morocco (GoM) prioritized public procurement for comprehensive reforms. Starting with 2003 Country Procurement Assessment Report (CPAR) Morocco embarked on a productive dialogue with the World Bank to improve its procurement system and optimize the performance of its public investments.

Republic of Armenia : Country Procurement Assessment ReportWorld Bank (World Bank, 2009-06-29)This assessment reviews the current status of public procurement in Armenia and makes recommendations for further improvements. It also provides an update of the Country Procurement Assessment Report (CPAR) carried out in May 2004. The report includes an action plan to assist the Government of Armenia (GoA) in moving the procurement reform agenda forward. The assessment was carried out jointly with the counterpart team appointed by the Minister of Finance. The major procurement legislation and other procurement-related laws and decrees, and documents were analyzed and interviews were conducted with procuring entities, suppliers, contractors, consulting firms, civil society, and government officials. The benchmarking report provides a reference point for the GoA to monitor and measure improvements in the public procurement system, and to formulate a capacity development plan to move towards a sound procurement system that leads to economy and efficiency in public expenditure. Donors can use these results to develop strategies for assisting in procurement capacity building and to mitigate risks in their individual operations. In order to further broaden the perspective on the public procurement functions in Armenia and also to focus on certain specific areas of concern, case studies have been carried out on public procurement in health and transport sectors. In light of the GoA interest in introducing Electronic Government Procurement (e-GP), the team has also prepared a special study on the subject, using the readiness assessment guide of the multilateral development banks' e-GP working group. Case studies have also been prepared on anti-corruption measures, and public-private partnership, given the importance of these topics to public procurement.
Republic of South Sudan : Country Integrated Fiduciary Assessment Southern Sudan, Volume 3. South Sudan Procurement Assessment ReportWorld Bank (Washington, DC, 2013-10-03)The purpose of this Country Integrated
Fiduciary Assessment (CIFA) is: (i) to assess the quality of
public finance management and procurement systems in South
Sudan; and (ii) to then determine the extent of fiduciary
risk posed to domestic and external tax payers by the
government's use of their funds through these systems.
South Sudan has great potential for further increases in
living standards, but achieving them will require large
improvements in public services, both in access and in
quality. In turn, Public Finance Management (PFM) and
procurement systems need to be strengthened in order to
improve public services; this will require linking spending
more tightly to policy objectives and strengthening the
operational efficiency of expenditures. In sum, strengthened
PFM and procurement systems are not an end in themselves
but, rather, the necessary means to achieving the ultimate
objective: improved service delivery in South Sudan. This
CIFA will be used by the Government of the Republic of South
Sudan (GRSS) and by the country state governments to inform
their design or reforms of PFM and procurement systems and,
in the case of development partners, to inform their design
or revision of technical and financial assistance programs
and projects in support of the reforms.
