Public Procurement which accounts for 25-30% of GDP calls for efficient, responsive and transparent purchase procedures as it involves huge amount of flow for Procurement of Goods, Services and Works. There is no central legislation governing Procurement in India. Comprehensive rules and directives in this regard are contained in the GFR 2005 and Delegation of Financial Powers Rules (DFPR). A broader framework is also provided by the Contract Act 1872, Sales of Goods Act, 1930, Law on Arbitration and Limitation and Right to Information Act, 2005.
There is a need for PUBLIC PROCUREMENT BILL which creates a statutory framework for public procurement which will provide greater accountability, transparency and enforceability of the regulatory framework and would also aim at providing the procurement rules and framework encompassing the guidelines covered by General Financial Rules, 2005, Defence Procurement Procedure and Manual, CVC Guidelines and all necessary existing procurement rules/guidelines under its spectrum for ensuing Transparent, Efficient and Accountable Procurement. The Bill builds on national and international experience and best practices to ensure strategic role of Public Procurement as appropriate for Make in India and fulfill the needs of the Government of India to develop India not as a permit-issuing authority, but as a true business partner.
Thus, with a view to clarifying many important issues and to discuss modifications that will enhance efficiency and transparency in Government Purchasing, ASSOCHAM is organizing 9th Public Procurement Summit at 10:00 a.m. on April 07, 2015 at Hotel Royal Plaza, New Delhi.
The summit will bring together various professionals involved in public procurement from different Government Departments, PSUs, State Governments and Private organizations to share the best practices and to discuss the critical issues of today and the future. There will be a large participation by the stakeholders including the Policy Makers, State Governments, National and International stakeholders including senior officials of Central and State Governments, leading corporate and Investors to name a few. Apart from information sharing, the event would also provide an excellent platform for business-to-business matchmaking.
