Caribbean Development Bank to provide procurement training

Published:Friday | May 2, 2014 | 9:33 AM

Consultants who provide services under a Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) programme are to receive training in good procurement practice, contract management and accountability.

The approximately 40 service providers and the Jamaica Social Investment Fund staff associated with the Basic Needs Trust Fund are to attend a training seminar which begins today.

During this week’s training, consultants will also be exposed to joint management of inputs with third parties, emphasising the area of maintenance and preparation of maintenance plans.

The Basic Needs Trust Fund Programme is a regional grant-funded poverty reduction programme managed by CDB which began in 1979 and operates in Jamaica and nine other countries in the region.

Its mission is to empower and help equip communities with necessary resources, and improve their access to basic public services.
