Last Update: February 4, 2014
The set of procurement contract awards on this site include summary and detailed reports for commitments against prior-review Bank-funded contracts awarded under IDA/IBRD investment projects and related Trust Funds (*).
Summary reports (click the individual charts to view the data) are broken down by OECD and non-OECD countries; detailed reports are country-specific and cover 101 countries that currently have Private Sector Liaison Officers (PSLO) network representatives.
(1) A project's thresholds for prior review vary from loan to loan and from country to country; they are specified in the project's Procurement Plan. Contracts below the prior review threshold, and other fast-disbursing contracts subject to the Bank's ex-post review, are not entered in the Bank's procurement systems.
(2) The nationality of awarded firms is based on place of registration, which may or may not be the same as the country of origin.
(3) Contract totals may vary in past and present fiscal or calendar years, as contracts may be cancelled or amended throughout a project's lifetime.
(4) All contract values reflect committed (not disbursed) amounts, and are in US dollars, based on the US Treasury's rate of exchange at the time of the Bank's no objection to the contract award.
(5) Contracts may include prior reviewed awards under the following agreement types: IDA, IBRD, Carbon Offset, Debt Reduction Facility, Global Environment Projects, GEF Medium Sized Programs, Guarantees, Institutional Development Fund, Montreal Protocol, JSA/PRSP and JSA/I-PRSP, Recipient-Executed Activities, Rainforest, Special Financing, IFAD-Funded projects, and UNDP-funded projects.
(6) Some contracts are mapped to multiple Major Sectors and are listed broken down into these sectors with an equal division of the total contract amount. For this reason, the total number of contracts may appear larger than it actually is.
Abbreviations: Please note that some aspects of the detailed contract reports contain acronyms or abbreviations for Procurement Types. The legend to explain these Types is here.
If you would like to request a detailed report for a country outside the PSLO network, or have questions on the datasets provided here, please send an email to Teia Thompson-Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) specifying fiscal year(s) and country(ies).

(For 101 Countries with PSLO network representation)
The 101 country-specific reports summarize contract award commitments under Bank-financed IDA/IBRD investment projects for Fiscal Years 2008-2013.
Contract totals are broken down by operational region, client country, major sector, procurement category (works, goods, consultancy services, and services), type of contract, procurement method, project ID and name, loan/credit number, agreement type (IBRD, IDA, GEF, etc.), contract description, supplier name, and amount in US dollars and/or US dollar equivalent.
Contract Awards (Red Book)
These Contract Award tables are a complilation of contracts that were reviewed and agreed to by Bank staff before they were awarded; i.e., prior review contracts. Generally, all major contracts financed under investment lending are subject to this prior review.
The reports in this section are similar to our Contract Awards (Red Book) reports but follow a different structure/data order and cover contract commitments from fiscal year 1993 to 2013, batched into sets of two or more fiscal years.
Also similar to the above reports, the following reports break down the contract awards by procurement category (goods, works, consultants, and non-consultant services) for fiscal years 2007-2013. Please note that category non-consultant services was discontinued for a period of time and reinstated in FY10.
