Procurement Training

Online Procurement Training

The current online procurement modules are based on the Procurement Guidelines for CDB-financed projects approved prior to November 2019. This self-paced learning includes three modules:

- Introduction to Procurement on Projects Financed by the Caribbean Development Bank;

-  Selecting and Engaging Consultants and Procurement of Goods; and

- Works and Non-Consultancy Services.

Registered nominees are expected to complete all modules within three weeks of being notified of their access to the modules. Upon the successful completion of each module, participants can download their completion certificate.

Going forward, we are developing modules specifically for the Procurement Framework that applies to CDB-financed projects approved from November 2019 onwards.
