Expanding Open Procurement Markets Under the World Trade Organization’s Government Procurement Agreement: Brazil – A Case Study in Opening the BRICS

The leading free trade agreement in procurement, the World Trade Organization (WTO) Government Procurement Agreement (GPA), is missing the BRICS: the world’s most important developing economies, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, have all failed to join. GW Law hosted this open colloquium, where a panel of senior procurement experts from Brazil, joined by senior members of the U.S. trade and procurement communities, explored the key hurdles to be met in bringing Brazil and the other BRICS into the GPA.

Program materials available online.

Link to video of colloquium.

Panel Topics

  • The GPA accession process — how the WTO views it, and how potential new entrants see it
  • Political and economic challenges for Brazil and other developing nations in preparing to join the GPA
  • The road to harmonization in procurement rules, between Brazil and the world
  • Addressing Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) preferences
  • “Buy Brazilian” — unique problems raised by domestic preferences

Panelists and Moderators

  • Alecia Bicalho, Motta & Bicalho
  • Augusto Dal Pozzo, Dal Pozzo Advogados
  • Cesar Pereira, Justen, Pereira, Oliveira & Talamini
  • Maurício Ribeiro, Portugal Ribeiro Advogados

Vote for the 2014 Outstanding MSPM Faculty Award
Summer 2014 Registration – Distance Sections Almost Full
National Fellowship Databases

Dear MSPM Students,

The top 3 items you need to know this week:

Vote for the 2014 Outstanding MSPM Faculty Award

Submit your vote before 12pm EDT on Friday, April 4, for the 2014 Outstanding MSPM Faculty Award. This is your opportunity to recognize your favorite professor for their contributions and dedication to MSPM students and the program.

Summer 2014 Registration – Distance Sections Almost Full

The distance sections of our summer course offerings are almost full. If your plan in DegreeMAP included attendance in the summer semester and you are limited to only distance courses, register immediately to claim your seat. If you are in the DC metro area and are able to attend the on campus sections, register accordingly.

If you have a financial hold on your account, you must resolve the outstanding balance with GW before you are able to register. The MSPM program office is not authorized to remove or bypass financial holds. If, however, you have an academic hold on your account, schedule an advisement session with me to discuss.

National Fellowship Databases

GW’s Office of Graduate Student Assistantships and Fellowships provides access to national fellowship databases. MSPM students are encouraged to utilize databases, such as Grant Forward and Pivot, to seek out funding for your graduate education. Many scholarships and fellowships are not issued annually because students simply do not apply.

Need help with your scholarship or fellowship application essay? Book an appointment with the GW Writing Center to present the best you in your application essay.

Fall 2014 Blackboard Collaborate Schedule

The Blackboard Collaborate schedule is now available for the fall 2014 distance courses. Your professors will review the schedule and expectations at your first class.
