Reinforcing Capacity and Co-ordination

image of Public Procurement in Peru

Public procurement is becoming a strategic tool in Peru for achieving key policy objectives. The legislative reforms enacted in 2016 indicate a strong commitment from the government to modernise the public procurement system. In fact, the system is currently going through a transitional period, moving from excessive formalities and complex tendering processes to prioritizing results and value for money. This report examines ongoing public procurement reforms in Peru, focusing on issues such as procurement processes, participation in tenders, and the culture of integrity in the public procurement process. It provides guidance to help Peru implement reforms that enhance the efficiency, transparency and accountability of the system.

Effective dispute resolution systems in Peru

This chapter examines the courses of action that suppliers in Peru can take to challenge procurement decisions during the procurement procedure and contract execution. Against the 2015 OECD Recommendation on Public Procurement, it attempts to determine whether the changes implemented in Peru in early 2016 are likely to build confidence in bidders by establishing effective means for disputing decisions so as to correct defects. The chapter also discusses the complications that can arise for OSCE as an administrator for the resolution of disputes and as a supervisor of the system as a whole. The chapter also highlights relevant experiences in other OECD countries that could prove useful to the Peruvian authorities.
