Untying aid through the Agreement on Government Procurement: A means to encourage developing countries’ accession to the Agreement and to improve aid effectiveness?

This chapter examines the compatibility of tied aid (i.e. aid granted on condition that goods and services for the aid-financed project are purchased from the donor country only) with the Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA), and investigates whether inserting untied aid commitments within the GPA coverage could favour developing countries’ accession to the GPA while enhancing the development character of the GPA itself and the success and coherence of donors’ development aid policies
