GOVERNMENT PROCUREMENT: THE
Statistics reports under Article
XIX:5 of the GPA
Article XIX:5 of the GPA, Parties are obliged to collect and
provide to the GPA Committee on an annual basis, statistics in
relation to procurements undertaken by that Party that are covered by
the Agreement. Statistics to be provided include statistics on the
number and estimated value of contracts awarded. Such statistics must
be broken down by entity and categories of products and services. To
the extent possible, statistics must also be provided on the country
of origin of products and services purchased by a Party's entities.
These requirements, which will be revised as
part of the renegotiation of the Agreement, have not worked well.
However, those statistics which have been notified by Parties pursuant
to the above procedures are accessible through the links below.
