Book Description

Government procurement system is the institutionalization and standardization of government procurement behavior. The government procurement system has a history of more than 200 years since its emergence, but less than 30 years in China. Why government procurement? This has to start from the unique characteristics of government procurement which are different from individual procurement and enterprise procurement. The purpose of government procurement is to meet the needs of the public, and the amount is large. Achieving value for money is the most important value goal of government procurement. In order to achieve value for money, the main assumptions are market mechanism and open competition. For this reason, the Chinese government procurement law establishes the competitive procurement method of bidding representative, and sets strict procedures to ensure competition and competition exceptions. In China's Government Procurement Law, the relevant government procurement method and its applicable provisions also occupy the main content. Therefore, the core content of Chinese government system includes: procurement method, performance management, performance evaluation, supplier relief and so on. Government procurement is a subject with strong applicability and wide range of applications. This book is a combination of theory and practice.
