The objective of the GovTech Procurement Practice Note is to explore how to better procure
GovTech solutions. The note provides recommendations to World Bank teams and client countries
on how to assess and prepare for the application of GovTech systems. GovTech is defined
as the use of technology to support government operations, service delivery and transparency.
It is a mechanism for whole of government public sector modernization that places the citizen at
the center of the reform (World Bank 2020). As an example, e-Government Procurement (eGP),
which is discussed in detail in this paper is a specific technology sub-category of GovTech that
is applied to manage and automate public procurement processes.
