A senior official of the office of the Comptroller and Auditor General (C &AG) and another from the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) are also supposed to join the conference.
The CPTU is implementing electronic government procurement (e-GP) in Bangladesh with a view to removing corruption and all hassles in public procurement and make the process faster and more competitive. The DG, CPTU is expected to share reforms implemented in Bangladesh’s public procurement and steps taken to boost transparency and accountability in this important area of public expenditures.
The e-GP system has gladly been accepted by tenderers and procuring entities in the country. It has substantially contributed to improvement in public procurement management and law order situation as well. Until July 11, 2017, about 1120 out of a total of 1300 procuring agencies were connected to e-GP system.
The progress achieved in e-GP implementation has drawn appreciation from global community and put Bangladesh in a lead position among all South Asian Countries.
