PREFACE

This report presents the findings and recommendations of an evaluation of Colombia’s public procurement system carried out using version IV of the Methodology for Evaluation of Public Procurement Systems – Version 4 of the OECD/DAC. The Minister of Finance and the National Planning Department1 (DNP) agreed to carry out this review with the banks to ascertain the extent to which the current procurement system is harmonized with international best practice and to identify ways to address any serious weaknesses. A team of government officials and staff from the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank (the Banks) carried out the evaluation from April 2008 through December 2008.


The DNP led the evaluation in close coordination with the Ministry of Finance. The key officials involved were Gloria Ines Cortes Arango (Ministry of Finance), Andrés Escobar and Diana Vivas (DNP), Gonzalo Suarez and Roberto Laguado o (Intersectoral Commission for Public Procurement,CINCO)2. The Banks prepared this report for consideration by the Colombian authorities as part of their non-lending services. The Banks’ evaluation team would like to acknowledge the extraordinary cooperation extended by staff from these two agencies and from other government units directly involved. The team also appreciates the contributions of private sector representatives who participated in the assessment and offered constructive contributions or comments, in particular, Francisco Suarez of the Colombian Chamber of Infrastructure.
The team members from the World Bank were as follows: Felix Prieto, senior procurement specialist and co-task team leader; Tomás Socias, senior procurement specialist; Silvia Moran-Porche and Cristina Cifuentes, procurement assistants. The team members from the Inter-American Development Bank were Eugenio Hillman, procurement specialist and co-task team leader; Rodolfo Gastaldi, senior procurement specialist; María Camila Padilla research fellow and Alfonso Sanchez, as principal advisor.

Enrique Fanta and PK Subramanian (peer reviewers, WB); and Felix Prieto (IDB). The consultants that applied the methodology were: Jairo Salgado (Pillars II & III), Transparency International, Colombian Chapter (Pillar IV) and Salome Naranjo (CPIs)
