Singe the 1990s, government at all levels is under increasing pressure to do more with less. However, despite the Nepal government spending large amount of its budget on contracts for goods and services, there is a paucity of reference books for public procurement officials and very few textbooks for courses on the subject.

Filling this void, the Public Procurement Management provides the knowledge necessary to understand how procurement works and how to improve the cost-effectiveness of procurement systems. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, the book focuses on the managerial, economic, and legal aspects of this topic.

The book also discusses the rise of electronic procurement systems (E-procurement) and reviews the benefits of these efficient systems. It also gives an introduction to the procurement guidelines given by FIDIC, the World Bank end ADB.

The book compiled after years of experience and research by the Authors intents to dispense advice valuable to government officials and contractors. as well as providing a comprehensive text for public procurement and public administration students.
