Enhancing procurement capabilities of the Peruvian workforce

This chapter describes the public procurement workforce in Peru and assesses the capability of that workforce to perform its procurement duties. Against the 2015 OECD Recommendation on Public Procurement, it analyses how Peru has engaged in strategic workforce planning, or is developing procurement capacity strategies, and diagnoses knowledge gaps. The chapter also discusses whether attractive, competitive and meritbased career options are being proposed to public procurement officials. Finally, it highlights how enhancing public procurement training availability and quality through specific training curriculums, certified universities and trainers as well as accessible training opportunities and information desks can contribute to higher levels of aptitudes. The experience of various OECD countries is presented to illustrate what improvements Peru can achieve with a strategic human resource management.
