Comming soon- XIII Annual Conference of the INGP 2017

October 3-5, 2017. Santiago de Chile, Chile.

Comming soon-  XIII Annual Conference of the INGP 2017
Value for Money  

In recent years a new vision has emerged of how to determine success in government procurement. Procurement decision-making has evolved from a price-only approach for measuring efficiency in public procurement to a multi-criteria one that considers not only price, but also a variety of dimensions relating to quality.

A commonly accepted way of expressing this change is encapsulated by the notion that the end-result of procurement should be to get the best value for money. In practice, this has been interpreted as the ability to award contracts taking into account both monetary and non-monetary aspects of suppliers’ bids. More than a formula, value for money is an approach and a principle whose meaning, scope, and importance continue to be discussed in different forms. 

The Inter-American Network on Government Procurement is no stranger to this debate, hence the decision to devote its XIII Annual Conference to the discussion of key elements for understanding this important concept and incorporating it in the different stages and forms of government procurement.
