Course Description :

Many public-sector organisations in developing countries that wish to obtain financial help, face the challenges of having to understand and then apply the strict procurement regulations of the funding agency. The World Bank’s regulations and processes have recently changed, and the organisation places an increased focus on the Borrower being able to create well thought out plans that will deliver effective development results. This Procurement Management of Equipment and Works for World Bank Aided Projects training seminar will cover the fundamental elements and processes involved and how the World Bank operates and what its expectations are.

This training on Procurement Management of Equipment and Works for World Bank Aided Projects explores the key provisions of the new World Bank Procurement Regulations for Investment Project Financing. These regulations place a high importance on ensuring that World Bank funded projects will deliver Value for Money and the new Procurement Framework is structured around achieving that goal.

End of the Workshop


While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
