- The State Procurement Supervisory Body (OSCE) is a specialized technical body that is part of the National Supply System and is attached to the Economy and Finance sector. One of its tasks is to implement activities and mechanisms for the development of capacities and competencies in the management of government contracting.
- Peru has 12,804 public procurement officials certified by levels.
- In 2018, Peru signed a USD 18 million debt contract with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to carry out the “Capacity Improvement for the Generation of Knowledge and Continuous Improvement in Public Procurement Management” project. One of the project’s components is "Human Resources Capacity".
- To develop this component, a diagnosis was needed to allow the design and implementation of a new improved training model for public procurement officials. OSCE decided to apply the MAPS Professionalisation Supplementary Module, because it identifies the strengths and weaknesses of a procurement system, specifically with regard to the professionalisation of the procurement function. For this purpose, it had the support of the IDB.
“The result of working with a learning and knowledge strategy will allow us to face the future with trust and solidity for Peru to close the existing gaps and to deal with current challenges from the pandemic and economic crisis.”
