The World Bank launched the Global Public Procurement Database (GPPD) – the world’s first database dedicated to the collection of country-specific public procurement information for every country in the world. 

The GPPD is a World Bank initiative with the objective of meeting the increasing demand, from both the public and the private sectors, for a comprehensive global knowledge product that captures data about country procurement systems and country eProcurement implementations at a global level.

In addition to a presentation and launch of the GPPD, we hosted a panel of global procurement leaders to lead a discussion of how better to attract SMEs to Government Procurement.

Public Spend Forum is proud to host the GPPD launch event, on behalf of the World Bank.

Watch recording!

This event took place on Mar 18, 2020. Follow our news and updates.
