Procurement constitutes a major activity of development projects and occupies a considerable portion of the project budget. In fact, almost about three fourth of the development budget is spent on procurement and this is even higher in case of construction projects. Hence, success of development activities relies on effective procurement management to a large extent. Meanwhile, most of the big construction projects in developing countries like Nepal are carried out under the assistance of donors and they are much more concerned about the economy and efficiency in projects. 
Asian Development Bank has recently approved a New Procurement Framework with the hope that it will reduce processing times and improve the quality of procurement decisions. In the case of Nepal, it has been effective in few ADB assisted projects. In this connection, this training is based on the requirement of new framework which marks a transition from a “one size fits all” to a “fit for purpose” approach to procurement. 
In this regard, the training program on Procurement of Works (ADB’s New Framework) has been designed to impart procurement management related knowledge and skills to improve the quality of procurement decisions.
