Central Purchasing Body
OECD Survey on Public Procurement, Glossary of key terms, published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in 2016, suggests Central Purchasing Body (CPB) means:
‘a contracting authority providing centralised purchasing activities and, possibly, ancillary purchasing activities, where ‘ancillary purchasing activities’ means activities consisting in the provision of support to purchasing activities, in particular in the following forms:
- a) technical infrastructure enabling contracting authorities to award public contracts or to conclude framework agreements for works, supplies or services;
- b) advice on the conduct or design of public procurement procedures;
- c) preparation and management of procurement procedures on behalf and for the account of the contracting authority concerned.’
