WTO – Government Procurement Agreement <br />The WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-GPA) came into force at the conclusion of the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations in 1994 and seeks to provide an international legal framework for the liberalization and governance of public procurement markets. <br />Full Text Available for Download at www.wto.org<br />
WTO – GPA : Main Elements<br /><ul><li>Guarantees of national treatment and non-discrimination for the suppliers of Parties to the Agreement with respect to procurement of covered goods, services and construction services as set out in each Party’s schedules and subject to various exceptions and exclusions noted therein;
Detailed requirements regarding transparency and procedural aspects of the procurement process, in general, designed to ensure that covered procurement under the Agreement is carried out in a transparent and competitive manner that does not discriminate against the goods, services or suppliers of other Parties;
Additional requirements regarding transparency of procurement-related information;
Provisions regarding modifications and rectifications of Parties’ coverage commitments;</li></li></ul><li>WTO – GPA : Main Elements<br /><ul><li>Requirements regarding the availability and nature of domestic review procedures for supplier challenges which must be put in place by all Parties to the Agreement;
Provisions regarding the application of the WTO Dispute Settlement Understanding in this area
Provisions regarding accession to the Agreement and the availability of Special and Differential Treatment for Developing and Least Developed Countries; and
A “built-in-agenda” for improvement of the Agreement, extension of coverage and elimination of remaining discriminatory measures through further negotiations</li></li></ul><li>WTO-GPA Signatories<br /><ul><li>Currently forty (40) WTO Members are covered by the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement. These comprise Canada, the European Community (27 member states), Hong Kong, China, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Korea Liechtenstein, the Netherlands including Aruba, Norway, Singapore, Switzerland and the United States.
Twenty (20) other WTO Members have observer status under the Agreement: Albania, Argentina, Australia, Cameroon, Chile, China, Columbia, Croatia, Georgia, Jordon, the Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Mongolia, Oman, Panama, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Chinese Taipei and Turkey. </li></li></ul><li>WTO-GPA Signatories<br /><ul><li>Four (4) intergovernmental organisations also have GPA observer status: the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the International Trade Centre (ITC).
At present, there are eight (8) WTO Members which are in the process of acceding to the GPA: Albania, Georgia, Jordon, the Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Oman, Panama and Chinese Taipei.

Donor Regimes<br /><ul><li>World Bank, IDB, ADB and other regional banks have established procedures and processes for procurements undertaken with donor funds
World Bank Procurement Rules & Guidelines http://web.worldbank.org/WBSITE/EXTERNAL/PROJECTS/PROCUREMENT/0,,pagePK:84271~theSitePK:84266,00.html
ADB Procurement Guidelines http://www.afdb.org/en/documents/project-related-procurement/policies-and-procedures/</li></li></ul><li>Challenges with Donor Regimes<br /><ul><li>The Multiplicity of regimes in states with immature procurement systems causes confusion among professionals interacting with and implementing the function of procurement.
There is a lack of domestic ownership of the procedures which stymies long term capacity development.
Donor funded procurement reform projects tend to produce systems heavily influenced by the donor.</li></li></ul><li>EU Public Procurement Directives<br /><ul><li>Directive coordinating the procurement procedures of entities operating in the water, energy, transport and postal services sectors, 2004/17/EC
Directive on the coordination of procedures for the award of public works contracts, public supply contracts and public service contracts, 2004/18/EC</li></ul> - transparent <br /> - open procedures <br /> - fair conditions of competition for suppliers<br />
The New ERA – EPAs <br /><ul><li>Despite the pressures of the developed countries on developing states to accede to the WTO – GPA which will mandate transparent public procurement processes and non-discrimination between suppliers – the developing countries have resisted.
EPAs are trade and economic partnerships between regional groups of African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and the EU. They replace the trade arrangements of the EU-ACP Cotonou Partnership Agreement which expired at the end of 2007. The ACP countries decided themselves on the regional groupings for EPA negotiations. There are four negotiating regions in Africa, one in the Pacific and one in the Caribbean. The Caribbean group is made up of the 15 CARIFORUM countries.
Now with the negotiation of EPAs between the EC and ACP territories, traditional “behind the border” issues such as public procurement, competition and investment policy, domestic space is threatened</li></li></ul><li>CARIFORUM – EC EPA<br /><ul><li>Arguably the most significant development in regional procurement policy
CARIFORUM comprises CARICOM Member States and Dominican Republic and Cuba.
In 2001 CARICOM and Dominican Republic signed an FTAA agreeing to harmonize procurement policy
CARIFORUM is the agreed organization with responsibility for negotiating trade arrangements with Third States</li></li></ul><li>CARIFORUM – EC EPA<br /><ul><li>On 16th December 2007 the CARIFORUM Member States (except Cuba) and the EC initialed an EPA
Latest page in ACP-EU relations . On 2nd September 2008 EPA was to be formally signed. Rumblings among member states postponed the finalization.
EPA signed by all CARICOM Member States 15th October 2008.
CARIFORUM-EC EPA contains provisions relating to public procurement – made history on the world stage as the first of it’s kind between developed and developing states!</li></li></ul><li>CARIFORUM – EC EPA<br /><ul><li>Two modalities for procurement policy in international agreements </li></ul> (a) Transparency <br /> (b) Non-discrimination / national treatment <br /><ul><li>WTO-GPA – deals with both. (Note limited execution by ACP developing countries)
CRNM asserts that the CARIFORUM – EC EPA – deals ONLY with transparency provisions </li></li></ul><li>CARIFORUM EC EPA<br />However see Article 167.1.2 which obliges parties not to discriminate against foreign companies that have a commercial presence in a CARIFORUM State and as such qualify as a domestic company for public procurement bids. <br />
ECOWAS EC EPA<br />NIGERIA must now continue to deal with the on going ECOWAS EC EPA negotiations. <br />Government procurement and trade and investment experts can learn from the CARIFORUM experience.<br />NIGERIA has the potential to be the leader in the ECOWAS negotiations – opting to serve as the anchor for the smaller, poorer West African states. <br />Côte d’Ivoire’s has signed.<br />Ghana soon to follow. <br />Will Nigeria be able to lead?<br />

Procurement in the Changing World - Summary<br /><ul><li>Procurement shift from administrative to more strategic function
Procurement no longer viewed as a transaction but occurring over the whole life cycle. Efficiency in procurement function must necessitate proper systems and capacity at each stage of the cycle.
Domestic Sovereignty over Procurement Systems slowly being eroded. Trade Agreements, International trade bodies and Donor Regimes demanding more OPEN procurement.
Courts more aggressive to protect rights of bidders</li></li></ul><li>Procurement in the Changing World – Summary <br /><ul><li>Strengthened Anti-Corruption and Access to Information Regimes both domestically and internationally – Multiplicity of legal Texts.
More sophisticated procurement methodologies, new P3 structures and Private Finance Initiatives, </li></ul> DBFM, DBFOM, BOLT, BOOT, BOT, Framework Agreements, Supplier Lists, Negotiated Formats eg.

Nigeria; The Short TermReal Economy and Politics<br />POSITIVE FACTORS<br /><ul><li>Little substantial in the short term.</li></ul>Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />
Nigeria; The Short TermMonetary Economy and Stock Market<br />NEGATIVE FACTORS<br /><ul><li>Stock Market liquidity is an issue with TURN/MV ≈ 3-4% (almost like Private Equity!)
Naira weakness not totally gone yet, notwithstanding actions by CBN and ECA
Budget deficit calculations ’09 (3-4%) could be optimistic </li></ul>Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />
Nigeria; The Short TermMonetary Economy and Stock Market<br />POSITIVE FACTORS<br /><ul><li>Recent oil price strength (US$ 70+) helps the budget (US$ 45)
Stock Market bottoming out after dramatic 70% drop (P/E 2009 ≈ 5)
Most local investors are piling up cash with interest rate and inflation trends working against them
High inflation levels (14-15%) will drop due to Global Crisis
Low Foreign and Public Debt; Room for Leverage if Necessary</li></ul>Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />
Nigeria; The Long TermReal Economy and Politics<br />NEGATIVE FACTORS <br /><ul><li> The political situation will continue to be uncertain, albeit that LMG Compendeon and Renaissance Capital believe that things can be solved</li></ul>However, LMG Compendeon analysts believe that government is aware of this risk (see speeches and actions of Min. of Finance Muhtar)<br />Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />
Nigeria; The Long TermReal Economy and Politics<br />POSITIVE EFFECTS<br /><ul><li>Low Foreign and Public Debt
LMG Compendeon: Expected growth GDP 2009-2012 5.5% and that is including the poor 2.1% for ’09
Oil resources and demand recovery will prove an enormous asset that will remain responsible for the bulk of foreign reserve inflow
The domestic and regional markets in other industries will grow in importance
Enormous pool of cheap and relatively young labor (compare the major theme in Goldman Sachs’s Next-11)</li></ul>Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />
Nigeria; The Long TermMonetary Economy and Stock Market<br />NEGATIVE FACTORS <br /><ul><li>High volatility and systematic market risk will remain. This leads to a relatively high country risk premium
Lack of transparency of the banking system and ECA might hinder growth (However note positive)</li></ul>Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />
Nigeria; The Long TermMonetary Economy Stock Market<br />POSITIVE EFFECTS<br /><ul><li>Stock Market with huge Potential. One of Goldman’s Next-11
Role as regional financial center highly likely
ECA is a strong asset. SWFs can be transformed into catalyst for growth
Diversification effect of an economy less dependent on oil can mitigate high country risk premium</li></ul>Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />
Nigeria; Combining the Short and Long Term<br />In Summary:<br /><ul><li>Real economic outlook doesn’t look good yet in the short-term. No real improvement before the end of the year.
But as so often: monetary factors and the stock market might be ‘leading indicators’. Signs of improvement and opportunities already visible.
We understand that the government will be ‘busy’ mitigating the effects of the Global Crisis and fighting the upheaval in the Niger Delta.</li></ul>Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />
Nigeria; Combining the Short and Long Term<br /><ul><li>But this provides a chance to focus on ‘structural’ policies to ensure that the long-term potential of the country (one of the flagships in Goldman Sachs’ Next-11) will be realized:
Attract Foreign Investors (both FDI and Portfolio)
Improve Transparency of the Banking System and ECA
Enhancing procurement capacity and efficiency
Diversify the Economy (compare Trinidad’s Vision 2020)
Improve Education through increased investments
(Infant Mortality ↓; Life Expectancy ↑)</li></ul>Sources: Renaissance Capital and LMG Compendeon<br />

Guy Callender and Darin Matthews The Role of Immanence in the future of Public Procurement (International Public Procurement Conference Proceedings, Vol 3<br />“In the case of procurement and supply chain management, the speed with which outside influences are changing procurement knowledge and practice result in the core body of knowledge within procurement being summarized as the capacity to manage procurement practice using a constantly variable mix of knowledge drawn from other disciplines to achieve the results of practitioners in the field….. Procurement professionals need to be able to evaluate procurement influences across a range of discipline areas at a professional standard of knowledge rather than just demonstrating a working appreciation of these content areas”<br /> (See also Giunipero, 2000; Humphreys, 2001; Wynstra, van Wheele, & Weggerman, <br /> 2001).<br />
