The Inter-American Network on Government Procurement (INGP) is an Inter-American system mechanism that provides high-level horizontal technical cooperation to generate and strengthen linkages among its members; promote the exchange of human, technical, financial, and material resources to generate knowledge, experiences, and best practices in public procurement among the member states of the Organization of American States.

Many governments have stated over the years and at various meetings that they need the support of other governments in their efforts to move forward to reduce corruption, foster economic and social development, and strengthen their institutions and democratic governance.
This is why, through the INGP, multiple benefits arise to provide public procurement directors in the Americas opportunities to cooperate in the analysis of lessons learned and best practices from leading institutions, and strengthen their capacity to define strategies and implement programs and projects to modernize government procurement.
Through the creation and dissemination of information, access to experts, the organization of workshops, conferences, cooperation between institutions, training of public officials and mobilization of technical support, we seek to help reduce the time, cost and risk of implementing initiatives such as the development of e-government procurement while increasing the quality and impact of the solutions adopted by each country.
The Network has an Inter-American reach and includes the promotion of technical cooperation projects in the areas of interest identified by the countries.
