OBJECTIVE BY ISSUE AREA
broad objective of negotiations in government procurement is to expand
access to the government procurement markets of the FTAA countries.
More specifically, the objectives are:
- To achieve a normative framework that ensures openness and
transparency of government procurement processes, without necessarily
implying the establishment of identical government procurement systems
in all countries;
- To ensure non-discrimination in government procurement within a
scope to be negotiated;
- To ensure impartial and fair review for the resolution of
procurement complaints and appeals by suppliers and the effective
implementation of such resolutions.
