Live Event: Presenting Recommendations and Action Plans of MAPS-II Assessment

Please join us for a cross-country experience-sharing on strengthening public procurement systems in Lebanon, Bangladesh, and Mozambique through the Methodology for Assessment Procurement Systems (MAPS). MAPS is the universal tool to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a public procurement system and to support the development of recommendations and an action plan for future reforms.


With support from the Global Public Procurement Multi-Donor Trust Fund (GPP –MDTF), LebanonBangladesh, and Mozambique have successfully completed the MAPS exercise. To some degree, the implementation process of a MAPS assessment is similar across countries. It generally comprises of assessing the legal and regulatory frameworks for public procurement, the institutional framework, market practices, and the accountability, integrity, and transparency of the public procurement system. The findings, recommendations, and next steps, however, are typically starkly different and highlight broader and more entrenched public financial management issues specific to the country.

The World Bank is organizing a series of events to present the MAPS assessments of different countries. In this first session, we will take a look at the key recommendations and proposed next steps for Lebanon, Bangladesh, and Mozambique. We will explore how these countries are approaching the findings from the MAPS exercise, whether they have been able to find any “quick wins”, and how the results of the exercise fit into the countries’ larger economic and good governance strategies.

This event will be livestreamed in English, Arabic, French, Spanish, and Portuguese – click here to join! Please feel free to disseminate this invitation to your contacts.
