The four most essential things to be ensured in public procurement are transparency, accountability, equitable treatment and free & fair competition. In Bangladesh, these could not be ensured earlier due to absence of proper legal framework. To streamline the public procurement activities, Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh has enacted Public Procurement Act (PPA) in 2006 and thereafter issued Public Procurement Rules (PPR) in the year 2008. Since then government organizations has considered PPA and PPR as a mandatory issue to be complied with in all sorts of public procurement activities. The Central Procurement Technical Unit (CPTU) of the Implementation Monitoring and Evaluation Division (IMED) continuously monitors the compliance of PPA and PPR in public procurement on the basis of 45 predetermined Key Performance Indicators (KPI). To monitor and ensure the compliance of PPA and PPR, CPTU has selected four government organizations as the target agency on the basis of the volume of procurement. In spite of being a major procuring agency of the country, PWD was not considered among the four as the volume of procurement of PWD was not within the first four of the list. But after that, the volume of procurement has increased substantially. This definitely creates the urgency of being monitored with due importance. The main objective of the study is to find out the extent of compliance of PPR 2008 by PWD and to find out the gap of compliance and scope of improvement for implementation. To get a closer look of procurement activities and get the evidence more specific, a case has been taken for better understanding.
