Young online procurement observers of Region II @ were monitored by the St. Paul University Philippines Knowledge for Development Center on January 30, 2009 at the SPUP KDC.

This activity aimed at assisting the online procurement observers in all KDCs nationwide brings a more transparent and corrupt-free public procurement system. The students who attended the PHILGEPS Training conducted by SPUP KDC on September 17, 2008 were asked to accomplish a checklist developed by Silliman University Knowledge for Development Center.

The information secured from this activity will serve as a basis of future plans to improve existing mechanisms to integrate the youth in programs aimed at monitoring transparency in local government procurement. The results will be shared with the World Bank, other Knowledge for Development Centers, and other concerned agencies such as the PHILGEPS and the Government Policy Procurement Board.

This activity is a component of the World Bank project entitled, Popularizing and Operationalizing the 2007 World Development Report: Exercising Citizenship in Transparency in Local Government Procurement.
