Green/Sustainable procedures for Projects

Course Title: Green Sustainable Procurement & Procurement Procedures for WB Funded
Course Preamble.
Green & Sustainable procurement is about taking social and environmental factors into consideration
alongside financial factors in making procurement decisions. It involves looking beyond the traditional
economic parameters and making decisions based on the whole life cost, the associated risks, measures of
success and implications for society and the environment. Making decisions in this way requires setting
procurement into the broader strategic context including value for money, performance management,
corporate and community priorities. This course is designed to solidify and build on your understanding
of how to integrate sustainability in the supply chain in order to promote sustainability issues via key
control points of the procurement cycle.
More specifically, the course will cover how sustainability affects activities like specification
development, tender criteria, proposal evaluation, contract award and whole-life costing techniques.
Delegates will receive practical guidance on how to implement sustainability themes across these different
areas, as well as understand how to proactively manage sustainability across a range of expenditure
Delegates will also be taken through hands on training on the World Bank procurement policies and
procedures; major procurement methods (International Competitive Bidding, National Competitive
Bidding, Shopping) and major consultant selection methods (Quality- and Cost-Based Selection, Least-
Cost Selection, Selection based on the Consultants’ Qualifications, Selection of Individual
Consultants).The trainers will also focus on procurement of Information Systems in Bank- funded
operations, evaluation of bids and common issues encountered in the evaluation process.
