An ICT-enabled procurement system and government adoption of e-commerce can transform business processes between the suppliers in the private sector and the Government. E-procurement promotes greater accountability of the Government, increases efficiency and cost-effectiveness and enables equal access to the public sector market. Developing countries can use e-procurement as a tool to achieve better governance and enhance economic development. The International Conference on E-procurement assisted the participants to gain a better understanding of e-procurement and e-government, and build capacity for the planning and implementing of an e-procurement system. The workshop was intended to assist the participants in defining priorities and specific actions for progressing to e-procurement. Some of the topics addressed at this conference included: re-engineering internal processes of government/public administration, factors critical to the successful implementation of e-procurement including e-training of government officials; stakeholder participation in e-government projects; building community and government leadership; and security and privacy issues in e-procurement. Participants were required to submit a proposal for implementing e-procurement in their countries, which could potentially be executed.
