The document aims to be a tool for ongoing research. Within the framework of procurement and development, the contents of this review include literature references to public procurement theory and also policies and practices of developing country governments, aid agencies, international organisations and, when relevant, literature dealing with the implications of the use of procurement as a development tool for relevant international agreements (e.g. WTO, OECD).
