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.

Strengthening the structure and co-ordination of the Peruvian public procurement system

This chapter analyses the organisational structure of public procurement in Peru and the reforms undertaken in 2016. It will discuss how these reforms are set to move the procurement agenda towards greater efficiency and value for money. It further assesses the mechanisms used by the Government Procurement Supervising Agency (Organismo Supervisor de las Contrataciones del Estado, or OSCE) and Perú Compras (PC) to coordinate the high number of procurement entities and ensure communication with and among these entities at the national and sub-national level. Finally, the chapter looks at the pros and cons of the core change in the Peruvian procurement structure, and presents an argument for further reorganisation of key platforms within the system.
