Description

The purpose of this report is to recommend tools to enhance effective delivery of infrastructure projects
in APEC member economies by identifying areas of commonality, where further and more detailed
harmonisation of approaches may be appropriate.

Current practices of procurement in a range of member economies have been reviewed to determine
key areas of commonality and ‘best practice’ that already exist within individual economies, as well as
areas where further consistency of approach would be beneficial.

Whilst, in economies with more developed PPP markets, the approach to procurement is broadly
similar, other economies with newly developing markets can clearly benefit from the experiences of
those with more developed markets. APEC could play a role in framing a set of ‘best practice’ principles
around the key elements of the procurement process. These principles would undoubtedly provide
both governments and the private sector with greater confidence in the process, and deliver
benefits through increased competition.
