PPG with its mission to improve the state of Public Procurement offers to lend help and expertise to all stakeholders in a NEW ROLE through Advisory Services.

Public Procurement needs a sound institutionalized system to support the procedures laid down in the General Financial Rules (GFR) and other instructions issued by the Government of India from time to time.  Any government organization making procurement has to keep in view the guiding principles and other objectives of the state.

Ignorance of norms and procedures leads to frequent misunderstanding, violation of defind norms and dispute between buyer and seller. This defeats the basic guiding principles of Public Procurement resulting in non execution and sometimes in loss to the exchequer.

The basic reason for these problems is lack of necessary expertise/training of the public procurement professionals.  The bidders who participate in public procurement are also not in a better position.
