Abstract
For many developing countries government procurement reform is a key issue, high on the good governance agenda. In addition, the recent revision of the WTO’s Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) has once again brought questions around transparency, discrimination, and the goals of procurement reform to the fore. To help developing countries advance their procurement policies, this article considers transparency and discrimination in the context of procurement reform. The stages of a procurement process are used to illustrate how procurement reform could play out in practice.
