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.

Going beyond price as an award criteria in Peru and measures to support secondary policy objectives

This chapter examines the use of evaluation criteria for awarding contracts to suppliers, including the role of selection committees and how they ensure strict compliance with the criteria in the solicitation documents.
