ABOUT THE GPI
All over the world, countries are considering how their governments plan, pay and procure the goods and services they need to build quality infrastructure. This is the rationale behind USTDA’s Global Procurement Initiative: Understanding Best Value (GPI).
Launched in 2013, the GPI helps public procurement officials in emerging economies establish practices and policies that utilize life-cycle cost analysis and best-value determinations to understand the total cost of ownership of public sector investments. It is a comprehensive curriculum of ideas informing overseas decision-makers about best practices to obtain the greatest value for money. This leads to more structured investments with overall savings to the government while also leveling the playing field for U.S. firms in international tenders.
