How to Advertise Procurement Notices
The Bank strongly encourages borrowers to use the Client Connection (CC) website when publishing notices. To establish an account in CC, borrowers should request registration information using the link on the bottom of the CC home page, being sure to request Procurement access. Current CC users that need assistance with publishing notices can use the Feedback feature available on all CC pages, which will notify the Client Connection team in ISG. Alternatively, they can contact their project’s procurement team.
Bank staff assisting Borrowers are to use Operations Portal when publishing notices. Bank staff should contact Regional staff indicated in the table below for assistance.
Notices submitted through Client Connection or Operations Portal are automatically sent to UNDB online, dgMarket, and the Bank’s external website.
Word templates can be used to create the official text of a specific procurement notice. The text can then be cut and pasted into the field "official text of the notice" when the notice is created online. Alternatively, data can be entered directly in the online form using the Word template as a guide.
