Nirmal Joshi

I completed my graduation in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Sir Padampat Singhania University Udaipur in 2012. In 2017, I completed Post Graduation in Development Practice from Tata Institute of Social Sciences Mumbai.

Currently I am working as a Senior Project Officer at Project Management Unit established for District Mineral Foundation Keonjhar, Odisha in collaboration with EY. My responsibilities involve project preparation, coordination with work departments (and various stakeholders), public procurement, monitoring and evaluation. I have also worked as Prime Ministers Rural Development Fellow (an initiative of Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India) in Madhya Pradesh. I have overseen and initiated a few procurement processes for the district administration which involve selection of agency for services and for providing goods.

My current job involves a lot of procurement activities such as preparing bid documents and oversee the bidding process. CPPP provided me a unique opportunity to increase my knowledge base and learn the nuances for better and efficient understanding implementation of public procurement. This certification also provided me with recognition as being certified professionals of public procurement.

Public procurement is a very nuanced and specialized procedure which is largely carried out by officials who are not aware about its Standard Operating Procedure. This leads to poor execution and raises questions on the transparency. I strongly believe that public procurement should be carried out only by professionals having expertise and officials should be certified so as to enable a standard practice across government procurement processes.

This MOOC Course is a great way to help Procurement Professionals as they can obtain more knowledge about public procurement. I would like World bank to introduce more of these courses to learn and sharpen one’s skills for better and efficient Public Procurement Practices.
