Abstract

Why should a country/ Government have a well-considered Public Procurement Policy?

1. Government is a bulk buyer 2. To assure the citizens that their money is being spent in a most judicious manner 3. To build trust among the suppliers and the industry that everybody is free to participate in a most transparent manner 4. An impetus to the industry and the economy, more demand : more production 5. Preferential treatment to specific sectors – SSIs, Co-operatives, Departments, PSUs etc

India does not have a single public procurement law, though policies, procedure and manuals are there; 1. General Financial Rules and Delegation of Financial powers Rules, although embodying some internationally accepted best principles, have no force of law. Marked differences in practices are followed across ministries and organisations and states. CVC circulars, MoF OMs…… 2. Only the states of Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and Karnataka have adopted transparency laws for public procurement
