The World Bank Group (WBG) is a world-class leader that works in every major area of development and provides a wide array of financial products and technical assistance to help countries share and apply innovative knowledge and solutions to the challenges they face. A range of advisory services, analytical work, capacity building, research, project appraisal and consulting services at the country, regional and global level are being procured by the WBG through Corporate Procurement to support these operational activities. They support areas such as human development, agriculture and food security, climate change, social sustainability and inclusion, education, trade, and many others.
During this event you will learn about the consulting services we purchase to support WBG-executed operational work and how to access such opportunities, including a live demonstration of our new WBGeProcure RFx Now platform and the Supplier Registration portal. You will also hear from WBG procurement experts on our corporate procurement rules and procedures as well as vendor eligibility criteria. The event will also feature the role the WBG plays as an agent of change towards sustainability, gender equality and women’s economic empowerment, and the efforts we make to increase participation of women-owned businesses in our supply chain.
