Staff Reporter: Law Minister Anisul Haque said, "If proper implementation of e-procurement system is possible, people's participation in government procurement management will increase and transparency will be ensured." He was speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural ceremony of the judges' third e-procurement virtual training course on Tuesday, January 5th.
The Minister said, “We need to make proper use of our limited capacity to materialize the dream of a prosperous Bangladesh that the Father of the Nation dreamed of. With this in mind, the government under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is working relentlessly. Bangladesh has already become a middle income country. In order to become a developed state by 2041, the government is continuing to deliver services to the doorsteps of the people quickly and easily in a digital manner. The government is committed to introducing the concept of e-governance in the state system as well as motivating people of all walks of life to perform their duties digitally. ”
Anisul Haque said, “One of the goals of SDG is sustainable e-governance, e-procurement. In order to make the government procurement system more transparent and people-oriented, various reforms have been done in the government procurement activities in the last 10 years. The e-procurement system has been introduced in government procurement as part of the implementation of the Prime Minister's vision of Digital Bangladesh. Through which efficiency, transparency as well as competition has increased. Judges have to be involved in various government procurement activities as well as trial. The training, which is being launched, will provide judges with a basic understanding of the legal framework for government procurement, the organizational management of modern public procurement systems, the various stages of public procurement and the procurement plans and processes. ”
He said, “Good governance is established in the country if the government can carry out government procurement activities in a timely manner with efficiency and transparency by following the existing laws and regulations properly. Eliminating corruption and ensuring transparency and accountability in all sectors is one of the goals of the present government. Government e-procurement will reduce corruption. The importance of procurement is immense in getting the right item at the right price in a timely manner. I think if the e-procurement system can be properly implemented in all sectors of the country including the judiciary, people's participation in government procurement management will increase and transparency will be ensured. ”
The law minister said, “This training will not be limited to government procurement only.Tthis training will be needed in judicial work during the trial of cases related to procurement.Copyright © Sunnews24x7
