Public Procurement Policy for MSEs

Policy Public Procurement Policy for Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) Order, 2012 states that the Central Government Ministries, Departments and Public Sector Undertakings shall procure minimum of 20 per cent of their annual value of goods or services from Micro and Small Enterprises. Click here to view and download the detailed guidelines of Public Procurement Policy.

The salient features of the Public Procurement Policy are summarized here:

  • Every Central Ministry or Department or Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) shall set an annual goal of procurement from MSEs from the financial year 2012-13 and onwards, with the objective of achieving an overall procurement of minimum of 20 per cent, of total annual purchases of products produced and services rendered by MSEs in a period of three years. After a period of three years i.e. from 1st April 2015, overall procurement goal of minimum of 20 per cent shall be made mandatory.

  • Out of 20% target of annual procurement from MSEs, a sub-target of 4% (i.e., 20% out of 20%) will be earmarked for procurement from MSEs owned by SC/ST entrepreneurs.

  • Every Central Government Ministry/Department/PSU will report the goals set with respect to procurement to be met from MSEs and the achievement made thereto in their Annual Reports.

  • In tender, participating MSEs quoting price within price band of L1+15 per cent shall also be allowed to supply a portion of requirement by bringing down their price to L1 price in a situation where L1 price is from someone other than a MSE and such MSE shall be allowed to supply up to 20 per cent of total tendered value.

  • The Central Ministry/Department/PSU will continue to procure 358 items from MSEs, which have been reserved for exclusive purchase from them.

  • Given their unique nature, defence armament imports will not be included in computing the 20% goal for M/o Defence. In addition, Defence Equipments like weapon systems, missiles, etc. will remain out of purview of such policy of reservation.

  • In addition, a ‘Grievance Cell’ would be set up in the Ministry of MSME for redressing the grievances of MSEs in Government procurement.
