Procurement is a critical part of the project cycle, allowing the National Recovery Program Bureau (NRPB) to contract the necessary goods, works, and services for the upcoming projects. At the NRPB, we follow World Bank procurement regulations, including those that safeguard against social, health, safety and environmental impacts and risks of projects.
These established procurement regulations ensure value for money, economy, integrity, fit for purpose, efficiency, transparency, and fairness. The process is a fundamental component of good governance and sustainable development. Here at the NRPB, we are committed to respecting all the above procurement principles and safeguards.
