Abstract:     
This paper, presented at the West Government Contracts Year in Review Conference (covering 2012), discusses developing issues in international public procurement. Among other things, the paper suggests that there is growing recognition of the role that procurement can play in national development and the fight against corruption. In the paper the author points out that, while there is a worldwide trend toward more and more similar procurement systems, that trend does not mean that procurement systems are becoming, or should become, uniform. Moreover, the author contends in the paper that procurement law has only a limited role in national development and the fight against corruption, and it is important that the focus shift more to implementation. With respect to the procurement legal framework, the author advocates a focus on key principles and the essential minimum requirements, rather than on specific details.
