ENG – Report- MMeGP
The eGP-MM evaluation instrument is made up of 185 indicators of good practices that are grouped into 25 areas of interest, and five dimensions of analysis: (i) technological, (ii) functional, (iii) integration and interoperability, (iv) data and information and (v) IT governance and management. The results include two indices for each of the countries: compliance index; and ii) maturity index. The scores of each index are presented in the range of 0 to 100 and are grouped into five levels.

Between 2020 and 2021, the Fiscal Management Division of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Organization of American States (OAS) as Technical Secretariat of the InterAmerican Network of Government Procurement (RICG), with the support of the Korea Public Capacity Building Fund for economic development (KPC) (managed by the IDB), implemented an instrument to measure the degree of maturity of electronic government procurement platforms (e-GP) in a total of 22 countries (19 countries of the Latin American and Caribbean region – members
of the INGP, two observer countries and one country at the international forefront in electronic procurement issues).

The purpose of this work was not only to glimpse the state of e-GP platforms in the region and to close a gap in knowledge in this area, but also to ensure that the results obtained with this
instrument had the potential to become a guiding tool for public procurement government authorities, and entities interested in creating improvement plans, or in drawing roadmaps to
promote the enhancement of their electronic e-GP platforms more effectively.

This document briefly describes the design of the e-GP-MM model and presents the main results achieved in the first round of this instrument on the e-GP systems of Latin America and the Caribbean by 2021 which will serve as a baseline for new analyses in future rounds.

We hope that the results obtained with this instrument will be useful for researchers and policymakers in government procurement within the region and throughout the world, and for those experts and individuals interested in discovering the good practices that enhance e-GP systems.
