Empowering Women Through Public Procurement

image of Empowering Women Through Public Procurement
Women-owned businesses represent one third of the small and medium-sized enterprises of developing countries, but only a fraction of government procurement opportunities for goods and services. This guide helps governments understand what measures to put in place so that more women-owned businesses have access to this important market, which often accounts for 15-20% of GDP. It includes practical national case examples, checklists and overviews for busy decision-makers as well as guidelines for implementation.

Monitor, evaluate and enforce policies

Monitoring, evaluation, and enforcement are necessary to ensure compliance with policies and programmes, to measure progress towards government or organizational objectives, and to make adjustments to improve the system. ‘Monitoring and evaluation can help an organization extract relevant information from past and ongoing activities that can be used as the basis for programmatic fine-tuning, reorientation and future planning. Without effective planning, monitoring and evaluation, it would be impossible to judge if work is going in the right direction, whether progress and success can be claimed, and how future efforts might be improved’ (UNDP, 2009, p.5).
