Information for Borrowers

Available in: Français, العربية, Español

 Last update: August 18, 2014


When the World Bank provides financing to its member countries for investment projects, each project is governed by a legal agreement between the World Bank and the government agency who receives the funds. One of the key obligations in the "Loan Agreement" is that governments abide by the Bank's procurement policies as detailed in the Guidelines: Procurement under IBRD Loans and IDA Credits and the Guidelines: Selection and Employment of Consultants by World Bank Borrowers. This page is intended to provide useful information to government agency staff including training opportunities, details on the "agency" assessment that is carried out by the World Bank during the preparation of a project as well as quick links to policies and guidance notes.
