Public Procurement Policies for MSEs


In the section 11 of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act, 2006 the Central Government through all its Ministries notified the “Public Procurement Act” where the mandate is to procure 20% from the MSEs for every Central Ministry and its relevant Departments, PSUs/PSEs from the year 2012-13. Annual goal of 20% procurement also include sub-contracts to MSMEs by large enterprises and consortia of MSEs formed by NSIC for the betterment and holistic development of MSMEs in the country. After a period of three years i.e., from 1st April, 2015, overall procurement goal of minimum of 20% became mandatory for all PSUs. Hence, there is a requirement to understand the procurement policy and implement it across the organisation vis-a-vis adopt vendor management strategies locally as well as country wide to promote overall growth for MSEs in the country.
In practicality, there is a gap of implementation of this Act. Many of the PSUs have limitations of sourcing scheduled 358 items notified, enterprises in usage of EM-II certification from DIC - manufacturer or services, etc.
