The CD-ROM creates a unique learning experience through a combination of graphics, photographic images, sound, and text. Users can easily work at their own pace and explore topics of interest at any time, in any order, and as often as needed. The training program consists of two major sections—the Learn Board and Case Studies.
In the Learn Board, users can explore and learn about topics that have been prepared by procurement advisors from the World Bank. The Learn Board displays procurement topics at a glance and serves as a convenient ready reference. It covers topics such as the principles of procurement, planning procurement activities, the steps involved in procurement of goods and works, and all the steps for selection of consultants in World Bank financed projects.
The program also includes two case studies that illustrate the application of policy and guidelines in the procurement of textbooks and the selection of consultants.
Topics covered in depth on this CD-ROM include:
• The Basics of Procurement
• Procurement in relation to the Project Cycle
• Procurement Planning
• ICB Methods and Other Methods
• Introduction to Goods and Works
• Bidding Documents
