Public procurement denotes the attainment of goods, works, or services required by governments through contracts. Public procurement is usually plagued with covert practices and exclusive forms of corruption in Bangladesh. The cost of development finance is much higher in public procurement than that of others in Bangladesh. There have been no unified rules or laws regarding government purchases since 2006. The Government of Bangladesh enacted its ever first act of public procurement, the Public Procurement Act, 2006 (PPA, 2006), and the Public Procurement Rules, 2008 (PPR, 2008). The procurement entity must disseminate procurement information through electronic medium i.e. Electronic Government Procurement (hereinafter e-GP). Despite passing over an era since its enactment, the role of the PPA, 2006 remains seriously under-researched area, specifically there is no research on the issue of the grievance redress mechanisms. The study has been done using a qualitative case study methodology, backed by both primary and secondary documentary analysis. Based on empirical data, this paper explained the role of digitalization in the process of government procurement and depicted changes that have been brought by the implementation of e-GP in government purchases. However, it concluded that the grievance redress mechanism in the process of procurement is only existing in the policy papers which need mandatory implementation for a transparent and accountable governance system. Despite the significant changes and up-gradation in digital government procurement, it is hardly found that the GRM process is digitalized. And the mass tenderers are yet to be acquainted with the improvised system apart from the consistent efforts of the government.

Hi there, I hope you're doing well. I assume that there are some tenders that require that the applicants be from the same country of the tender. Is there a way to filter results where only tenders that accept applicants from other countries show up? Please note that our field is e-learning (specifically education enabling by providing content digitization and a technological platform (LMS) in partnership with content creators & sellers).
Fertilizer P has become a costly in put in recent times and farmers are facing problem in procuring sufficient amount for application to crop as per recommended rates of application. As Fertilizer P losses from soiil are minimum or negligible, one can think of application of just equivalent P to crop removal , avoiding depletion of soil P. This approach may help farmers to save cost on Fertilizer P and also maintain soil P without much depletion.

I need a specimen of a particular bird as well as of a particular animal that is not found domestically or in any slaughterhouse . Researchers have tried to bio-mimic various parts of their bodies to construct and manufacture a lot of engineering products and tools, but unfortunately, very little research has been done on their bones and different parts based upon their chemical composition, and other mechanical properties. So can someone please guide me as to where I can get a specimen of the Accipitridae family, as well as animal specimens from Arcidae and Meloidae family in India, using legal and valid means? I don't want to procure the materials illegally as this is going to be utilized for forming a new material composite for application in few industries if it matches the set standards so don't want to get into any legal tussle. So kindly guide me from where I can procure the material by validation and from government-approved labs in India. If anyone wants to share it here fine otherwise if you want to discuss it personally then you can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If these materials could be send from some other country to India and utilized for material research then I am open to collaborating on that as well.
Can someone please tell me where I can procure animal bones, horns as well as carcasses of dead animals if possible in India? This is needed to form a new biocomposite using these things as reinforcements? Can someone please guide me as to where I can procure these in India?

My interest area lies in the implementation of Blockchain technology in Supply chain and Procurement.
For the Supply chain, we can integrate it to track the supply and demand by collaborating it with suppliers to track the production timings and shipment. Is it possible with blockchain technology?
For Procurement, the payments for suppliers around the world can be done using stable cryptocurrencies. eg., USDT. This could save a huge amount on transaction fees.
I'm not aware if this technology is already in use.
can this be done for Master Thesis? Please share a view over this.
Thank you in advance!!

I am conducting a single-case study research as part of my dissertation for a Master's degree. The topic is in the area of public procurement and innovation. The aim is to explore to what extent standards referenced in public procurement allow innovation in State-Owned Enterprises (in a one country).
The research is designed as a single case-study. As identified by Robert K. Yin in his book Case Study Research, one of the rationales of a single case study is the representative or typical case. As a result, I have arranged for an interview with one procurement professional from the selected organization. However, my supervisor informed me that a single interview will not be sufficient to get unbiased and comprehensive data for analysis and discussion. Additionally, I was advised to conduct surveys if it is difficult to arrange interviews.
I do not understand why is it necessary to involve more than one participant in the research and conduct more than one interview. Also, how surveys are going to help get sufficient data, given that I am conducting a qualitative research. As for data analysis, I am going to use thematic analysis in which I will link what to be said in the interview with my findings from the literature.
I would appreciate it, if you could advice me on what should I do

I wondered whether creating this ideal world was really this simple. If yes, why do we not spend MUCH MORE attention to ethics in supply chains, that is with the selling and the buying side. And consider the financial and societal benefits more ethical supply chains would bring. Looking forward to a good discussion. BR Anne Staal

I am assisting in a research project on sustainability in Fashion Design. Specifically, in relation to fashion design practices, fashion curricula and teaching practices at tertiary institutions. For instance, do tertiary institutions teach sustainable fashion design practices to drive sustainable fashion design. This could be in relation to the environmental impact, ethical sourcing, changes in curricula to accommodate this line of thinking. The research may not necessarily be linked to sustainable fashion design, but related industries such as textiles, procurement etc. which I can review as possible source material.
If anyone can suggest reading of previous research, papers, studies etc in relation to any of these concepts, even conceptually, that may assist, I would be most grateful.
Thank you in advance.

In state agricultural universities , some scientists are entrusted with technology transfer job whereas they are trained in research projects during their masters and doctorate programmes. Contrary to this , in private sector, people are enrolled and trained in either production, marketing, quality control and procurement etc. As a result of which technology is transferred automatically among the users.Hence, is it essential to have a Ph.D for technology transfer purpose.
i want to analyse how can three pillars affect the procurement perfomance (time, quality and price).
these three pillars are: competition in the market, complexity of the furnitures, and the experience of the buyer.
