International Competitive Bidding

A system the World Bank uses to reduce the risk of the loans it makes. It requires borrowers to advertise the project a loan is funding in an international language and to accept the lowest (reasonable) bid from subcontractors. Agreeing to abide by international competitive bidding is a condition of borrowing from the World Bank.
