CASP audit plans review month

SAIs' audits contribute to sustainable public procurement practices linked to SDG 12.7

An IDI-OLACEFs article considers the CASP audit reports and asks if nations are promoting sustainable public procurement as a strategic instrument for green and inclusive growth.

Available in Spanish and English, IDI's latest article is entitled “Are nations promoting sustainable public procurement as a strategic instrument for green and inclusive growth?” It reflects on the CASP initiative implemented in OLACEFS, as one of the pilots of ISAM.

To a large extent, it leverages on the audit reports issued by twelve of the fourteen participating SAIs. It summarises the main insights and recommendations provided by SAIs in relation to Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP), particularly on aspects such as regulatory framework, improvement of capacities, level of coordination and coherence among different institutions, how the 2030 agenda principle of Leave No One Behind (LNOB) is considered and mainstreamed by Governments and procurement systems, what is the level of regular interaction with stakeholders, and what are some of the issues with procurement data for implementing SPP.

Bearing in mind that IDI’s mission relates to the improvement of capacities of SAIs, IDI also reflects on how participating SAIs benefitted from CASP and how can we continue to build on what we have achieved.

Es para la IDI un placer presentarles nuestro artículo “¿Están las naciones promoviendo las compras públicas sostenibles como un instrumento estratégico para el crecimiento verde e inclusivo?”, en el que se reflexiona acerca de la iniciativa CASP implementada en OLACEFS, uno de los pilotos de ISAM.

En gran medida, estas reflexiones se basan en los informes de auditoría emitidos por doce de las catorce EFS participantes. De modo que estamos presentando las principales ideas y recomendaciones proporcionadas por las EFS en relación con las Compras Públicas Sostenibles (CPS), particularmente en aspectos como el marco regulatorio, la mejora de las capacidades, el nivel de coordinación y coherencia entre las diferentes instituciones, el modo en el que el principio de la Agenda 2030 No dejar a nadie atrás (LNOB) es integrado por los gobiernos en sus sistemas de compras, el grado de interacción con las partes interesadas y algunos aspectos vinculados con los datos e información para implementar CPS.

Teniendo en cuenta que la misión de la IDI se relaciona con la mejora de las capacidades de las EFS, también estamos reflexionando acerca de cómo las EFS participantes se beneficiaron del CASP y cómo podemos continuar construyendo sobre lo que ya se ha logrado.
