Online Educational Course “e-Procurement Learning”

This e-Learning course is designed to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the concept of public procurement and e-Government Procurement (e-GP) and how e-Procurement solutions can be designed and implemented in a more effective and economical way. This course outlines how to prepare a strategy for establishing an e-GP framework and presents in detail basic and advanced tools of e-Procurement systems. Moreover, it describes the need for the establishment and use of public procurement indicators, as well as how public financial management can be strengthened through the incorporation of procurement and e-Procurement into PFM reform projects.

Course overview

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.
