Procurement Plan Training Held By The Public Procurement Commission

The Public Procurement Commission (PPC) held a Procurement Plan Training at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre located on the Railway Line, Liliendaal, East Coast Demerara, on May 17th, 2023, to assist Public Procuring Entities to better comprehend the use and evaluation of the procurement plan.

Pursuant to Section 11.A(1) of the Procurement Act, Cap. 73:05, “Every procuring entity shall submit that entity’s procurement plans to the Public Procurement Commission for the fiscal year covered in the National Budget within three weeks after the National Budget is approved”.

Procurement Planning is essential in the procurement process as it fosters greater efficiency, value for money, transparency, and accountability.

The PPC reminds public procuring entities who have not yet submitted their Procurement Plans to the commission to do so as mandated by the aforesaid Act.

The event received a grand turnout from numerous public procuring entities. Opening remarks were made by the Chief Executive Officer of the PPC, Mr. Michael Singh, and presentations were delivered by officials from the PPC’s Operations Department.

A total of 195 participants benefited from this training which covered the following topics:
* The purpose of a procurement plan,
* Developing a procurement plan,
* Evaluating procurement plans, and
* Implementing procurement plans.

The Commission continues to encourage all procuring entities, suppliers, and contractors to take advantage of the training opportunities provided by the PPC to learn more about the public procurement processes in Guyana to ensure their compliance therewith.
