Background of Procurement Unit in LGED:

Before enacting Public Procurement Acts (PPR-06), all the procurement contracts were dealt with the‘The Law of Contract’ which is very general in nature. Since, any public procurement contract demands simple bureaucratic procedure, high level of competency of the staff, quality tender documents, standard tender evaluation framework, effective administration of contracts and presence of adequate mechanism for ensuring transparency & accountability, therefore, PPR-06 has distinctly given advantage over the existing Law. In a way to PPA-06, the government of Bangladesh had issued also the Public Procurement regulations2003(PPR-03).  Immediately after pronouncingPPR-03, LGED established a separate Procurement Unit in head quarter level on January 2004 in order to early cope up with the changes.

    To provide technical assistance to all Procuring Entities in LGED in order to implementation PPA ’06 and PPR’08 in public procurement;
