Global Procurement Initiative

Contact Us
Launched in 2013, USTDA’s Global Procurement Initiative (GPI) trains public officials in emerging markets on how to establish procurement practices and policies that integrate life-cycle cost analysis and best value determination in a fair, transparent manner. The GPI helps partner countries acquire high-quality, long-lasting technologies, while building smart, sustainable infrastructure with overall savings to their government. These procurement methods also open markets to greater international competition. USTDA’s toolkit allows the GPI to deploy tailored support to the following partner countries. The GPI is also able to leverage the expertise of its institutional partners and collaborators, which include universities, multilateral development banks and government entities.
