I. Seriously study and implement the spirit of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China, in-depth analysis of the new situation, new tasks and new requirements faced by the government procurement work. A very important conference held at a critical period of this year was a conference that did not forget its original intention, remembered its mission, held high the banner, and forged ahead in unity. The conference analyzed the development of the international and domestic situation, reviewed and summarized the work and historical changes in the past 5 years, made major political conclusions such as the entry of socialism with Chinese characteristics into a new era and the transformation of major social contradictions, and profoundly explained China in the new era The historical mission of the Communist Party of China puts forward the basic strategy of adhering to and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, and has determined the goals of winning a comprehensively well-off society and starting a new journey of building a socialist modernized country. And the great new project of party building has been fully deployed. To study and implement the spirit of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the most important thing is to thoroughly understand and understand the main line and soul of Xi Jinping's new era of socialist thought with Chinese characteristics. The whole process. In the report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping proposed "eight clear" and "four adherences", which clarified the major policy guidelines for the development of various undertakings in the new era. We must firmly grasp this powerful ideological weapon and innovative theory, and thoroughly analyze the new requirements for government procurement in the new era.
First, the government procurement system is an important part of the modern financial system and must be adapted to the new requirements for accelerating the establishment of a modern financial system. Finance is the foundation and important pillar of national governance, and a scientific fiscal and taxation system is the institutional guarantee for optimizing resource allocation, maintaining market unification, promoting social equity, and achieving long-term security in the country. The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China emphasized the need to speed up the establishment of a modern financial system, the establishment of a comprehensive, standardized, transparent, scientific and constrained budget system, and the comprehensive implementation of performance management. As an important part of the financial system, government procurement is an important part of budget execution. It must implement and reflect the requirements of the modern budget system. In planning the next step, we must pay more attention to the standardization and transparency of procurement activities, continuously promote the disclosure of government procurement information, and strengthen social supervision; we must further strengthen the constraints on budgets and expenditure standards, and implement the main responsibility of budget units; we must always focus on improving performance and Ideas and methods are deeply integrated into the design of the procurement system, the compilation of procurement budgets, and the entire process of implementation and supervision, which better reflects the result-oriented.
Second, government procurement is an important means of national macro-control and must be adapted to the new requirements of building a modern economic system. The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China clearly pointed out that China's economy has shifted from a high-speed growth stage to a high-quality development stage. It is now in the tackling phase of transforming the development mode, optimizing the economic structure, and transforming the growth momentum. Building a modern economic system is an urgent requirement to cross the border And the strategic goals of China's development. Government procurement, as a universal macro-control means, must meet the requirements of building a modern economic system, improve political standing and work levels, and promote sustainable and healthy economic and social development. It is necessary to continue to improve policy measures, actively expand policy functional goals, improve support for innovation and green procurement policies, improve support for small and medium-sized enterprises, promote the integration of military and civilian development and other policies and measures, assist supply-side structural reforms, and implement new development concepts.
Third, government procurement is an important part of building a government ruled by law and a clean government, and it must meet the new requirements of fully administering the country according to law. The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China has made important arrangements for "building a government under the rule of law and advancing administration according to law", opening a new chapter in building a government under the rule of law. Government procurement, as the transaction behavior of government entities participating in market activities, is related to the credibility of the government, and it must be included in the standardized and legalized track, and it must be promoted constantly and vigorously. We must conscientiously implement the requirements of the 19th CPC National Congress on deepening the practice of administering the country according to law, establish and improve government procurement regulations and systems, adhere to rigid systems such as establishing rules and standards, and implement strict normal supervision in China. To continuously improve the level of rule of law in government procurement; to further advance the reform of "decentralization and management services", to effectively improve the government procurement management and enforcement mechanism, and to reduce links, improve efficiency, reduce institutional transaction costs, and maintain the order of government procurement market transactions; The government has performed its functions in a comprehensive and correct manner on the legal track, and has created good conditions for serving the people wholeheartedly.
Fourth, the government procurement market is an important part of China's expanded opening up, and it must meet the new requirements of the country's opening up strategy. The report of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China clearly stated that it is necessary to "promote the formation of a new pattern of comprehensive opening up", emphasizing that "the door of China's opening up will not be closed, it will only open wider." "" Develop a higher-level open economy ", while also actively participating in the reform and construction of the global governance system. The report system answers major propositions such as whether China is to be open in the new era, what kind of openness is needed, and how to better promote openness. It not only shows the firm determination of the Chinese government to expand openness, but also reflects China's responsibility to maintain the international economic order. China's bilateral and multilateral negotiations with other countries, regions and international organizations involve government procurement. Joining the World Trade Organization's "Government Procurement Agreement" (GPA) is a key step towards the opening of the government procurement market in China. It is necessary to further accelerate the process of China's accession to the GPA and maintain the multilateral trading system with practical actions. It is necessary to actively explore new ways to open government procurement market negotiations under the bilateral mechanism, steadily advance the construction of free trade zones, and improve the level of bilateral opening up. It is necessary to actively participate in the formulation of international rules on government procurement and improve China's institutional voice in global economic governance. It is necessary to take the opening of the government procurement market as a starting point to bring about wider, wider and deeper opening, and make greater contributions to the promotion of an open world economy.
The national government procurement system must fully and accurately understand the spirit of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China, penetrate Xi Jinping's thoughts of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era into the entire process of deepening the reform of the government procurement system, and actively seek, analyze, and match the new requirements faced by government procurement. Set accurate goals and directions, recognize the situation and tasks, grasp the work and effectiveness, and demonstrate the new climate and new actions of government procurement.
Second, to further enhance the sense of urgency and responsibility of government procurement reform, and plan to create a new situation in government procurement
This year is the fifteenth year of the formal implementation of the Government Procurement Law. In the past 15 years, all regions and departments have conscientiously implemented the government procurement law, promoted the gradual breakthrough of government procurement from easy to difficult, steadily deepened, and stepped out of a reform from scratch, from point to surface, and from small to large. The road to entrepreneurship. The scale of government procurement across the country increased from 100 billion in 2002 to 3 trillion in 2016.A complete set of legal systems including administrative regulations, departmental regulations, regulatory documents, and local regulations that complement the government procurement law have been established. The key links with the nature of "four beams and eight pillars", such as the procurement system and mechanism, implementation operations, policy functions, basic management, supervision and inspection, and market opening, have implemented a series of important landmark reforms. The construction of the government procurement team has been continuously strengthened, focusing on the organizational structure, human resources, and professional capabilities of procurement agencies. In the past 15 years, the reform of government procurement has been fundamental and development has been comprehensive. Practice has shown that the basic system of government procurement management established by the Government Procurement Law complies with the objective requirements of the construction of a socialist market economic system in China, which not only saves a lot of financial funds, but also creates a market environment for fair competition, promotes anti-corruption, and promotes the realization of The national economic and social goals have played a positive role, contributing to the socialist market economic system, government governance, and fiscal and tax reform, fully demonstrating the advanced nature and vitality of the government procurement system. The hard-earned achievements of the past fifteen years are the result of the hard work of the national government procurement system. We must further build self-confidence and enhance our sense of accomplishment and pride.
Of course, while seeing the results, we must also clearly realize that the reform of the government procurement system has not yet reached the expected goals. Compared with the requirements of the Party Central Committee, the State Council and the Ministry of Finance and the expectations of all sectors of society, there is still a certain gap, mainly reflected in the government The management and implementation mechanism of procurement is not yet perfect. The professional support role of procurement agencies and review experts needs to be strengthened. The procurement unit still reflects more on "expensive and slow difference". The role of government procurement policy in the role of demonstration model is difficult to adapt to the new era. Need to wait. In March of this year, Premier Li Keqiang clearly requested at the Fifth Integrity Work Conference of the State Council to address the prominent social reflections in government procurement, further deepen reforms, accelerate the improvement of the government procurement system, and strengthen demand management, compliance acceptance, and supervision of review behaviors. Strengthen internal control responsibilities, improve transparency, and promote standardized, clean, and efficient government procurement. Since the 19th CPC National Congress, government procurement has faced higher requirements. The reform of the government procurement system is at an important juncture to improve governance capabilities, implement new development concepts, improve and improve the rule of law, and accelerate market opening. It must not just stay at the level of practical operation, but must be included in the overall pattern of deepening reforms for systematic consideration.
To do a good job of government procurement in the new era, the national government procurement system must deeply understand the strategic deployment of the Party Central Committee. Always keep in mind that reforms can only be carried out and not completed, and they must not be relieved or rest their feet, let alone wait and see, and further unify Thinking, improving standing, earnestly enhancing the sense of urgency and responsibility, insisting on solving outstanding problems in practice in deepening the reform of the government procurement system, and planning to create a new situation in government procurement. In further deepening the reform of the government procurement system, the following aspects should be properly grasped and handled properly.
First, the relationship between government procurement reform and overall fiscal reform. Government procurement is an important system to strengthen the management of fiscal expenditures, followed by departmental budgets, followed by centralized treasury payments and asset management.It is a key link in the fiscal expenditure management cycle. It has realized the extension of fiscal management from allocation to use, and The expansion of money into the physical. To study and deepen the reform of the government procurement system, we cannot purchase on the basis of procurement. We must integrate government procurement into the overall framework of fiscal reform and strengthen the coordination between government procurement and other means of financial management. On the one hand, we need to improve and optimize the system design of government procurement, further improve the standardization and transparency of government procurement, strengthen budget constraints, and promote the combination of government procurement demand management with budgetary standards and public service performance standards. On the other hand, it is necessary to effectively strengthen the organic combination of government procurement and departmental budgets, asset management, centralized treasury payments and performance evaluation, rely on comprehensive supervision of financial expenditures, and establish a "budget-planning-procurement-payment-supervision" cycle monitoring mechanism to make efforts Solve the problem of "re-allocation, light management".
Second, the relationship between the government and the market. Government procurement is connected to the government at one end and followed by the market at the same time. It is both a government performance and a market transaction activity. The report of the 19th National Congress of the CPC emphasized again: "make the market play a decisive role in the allocation of resources and better play the role of the government." This should be the basic compliance of government procurement and the relationship between the government and the market. In the process of improving the design of the system and strengthening the supervision of procurement, give play to the role of "invisible hand" and "visible hand", and fulfill the rules makers, Positioning of dispute arbiters and order maintainers. First, efforts should be made to improve the rules of fair transactions in government procurement activities, and promote the formation of a unified, open, and orderly market system. The second is to adhere to the management of procurement according to law, improve the level of rule of law, maintain good order in the procurement market, handle supplier complaints in accordance with law, and protect the legitimate rights and interests of suppliers. The third is to strengthen the policy function of government procurement, give play to the role of regulation of economic and social development, and implement the new development concept.
Third, the relationship between standardized and transparent procurement procedures and the "value for money" of procurement results. The essential requirement of government procurement is to follow the statutory procedures to achieve procurement goals and ensure the government's performance of duties and public service needs. On the one hand, the standardization of procedures is the most effective way to guarantee fair results. It is also an inevitable requirement for building a government ruled by law and a government of sunshine. It must be strictly implemented. On the other hand, government procurement procedures serve results, and the design of procedures should help "value for money." Any one-sided emphasis on procedural neglect of results or a focus on results neglect of procedures in procurement activities is a mistake. This requires that the system design of government procurement must take into account both procedures and results, while emphasizing the transparency of procedures, while focusing on improving the satisfaction of procurement results. Specifically, the first is to persist in improving the results-oriented government procurement system, strengthen the weak link management such as demand and performance acceptance, and integrate the result-oriented and performance concepts throughout the entire process of procurement activities. The second is to improve the satisfaction of procurement results as the goal, improve the procurement implementation mechanism, enhance policy flexibility, and promote more standardized, transparent, efficient and smooth procurement activities. The evaluation index of the satisfaction of procurement results should not only include the capital cost of procurement, but also the efficiency of procurement and the implementation of procurement policies. The third is to further improve the transparency of government procurement, implement the information disclosure requirements of the entire process of government procurement, and consciously accept the supervision of all parties.
Fourth, the relationship between simplified administration and decentralization and innovation supervision. Simplifying administration and decentralization, combining decentralization and management, and optimizing services are a key task that the current government is focusing on. Leading comrades of the State Council attach great importance to this and have made arrangements for deployment many times. The report of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China further emphasized the need to "transform government functions, deepen administrative decentralization, innovate supervision methods, strengthen government credibility and execution, and build a service-oriented government that the people are satisfied with" from the perspective of deepening institutional and administrative system reform. Since 2014, the government procurement supervision departments and centralized procurement agencies at all levels have revolved around the requirements of “decentralized service” reforms. They have not only eliminated the government procurement agency qualification certification, launched “double random one disclosure” supervision and inspection, and other regulatory actions. The optional actions such as raising the government procurement related standards, expanding the procurement unit ’s independent procurement ratio and purchasing autonomy, and completing commitments within a time limit have achieved positive results and reflected well in all aspects. However, from the overall situation in the country, there are still problems such as the inconvenience of simple administration and decentralization, the lagging of regulatory innovation, and the lack of obvious service effects. Financial departments at all levels should not regard "delegating management services" as a phased task, but must continue to promote the new reform concept of government procurement. The first is to further optimize the operation mechanism of government procurement by advancing the "decentralized service" reform, starting from empowering and increasing energy, expanding the autonomy of purchasers, and implementing procurement decision-making power and improvement for budget departments in accordance with their public service functions. Purchasing efficiency opens the "ceiling", simultaneously improves the main responsibilities of budget departments in the entire procurement process, increases the disclosure of information, and strives to achieve a balance between decentralization and management. The second is to promote the "decentralization of service" reform to build the basic guarantee of government and market relations in the procurement field, stimulate market vitality, "relax and reduce burdens" for government procurement suppliers, and reduce institutional transaction costs for government procurement. The third is to promote the reform of “decentralization and management services”, change the concept of supervision, and change from strengthening pre-examination and approval to strengthening post-event and post-event supervision, innovating supervision methods, relying on information technology and big data, and strengthening the dynamic supervision of key links in government procurement. Strengthen the credibility and authority of government procurement supervision.
Fifth, the relationship between market opening and domestic reform. Market opening and domestic reform are two aspects of government procurement. The two are conditions and promote each other. On the one hand, reform can promote openness. The domestic government procurement reform creates the institutional foundation and market environment for market opening, which can strengthen the "spirit" of negotiations and increase the bargaining chips. The progress of domestic reforms determines the process of market opening. On the other hand, openness can in turn promote reform. The opening of the market has forced the reform of domestic government procurement. The opening of the market requires that the legal system of government procurement in China is consistent with the GPA rules, which will prompt domestic reforms to accelerate towards marketization and internationalization. Therefore, government procurement work must coordinate the planning of market opening and domestic reforms, just like the two wheels of a horse-drawn carriage, and we must adhere to the "two-wheel drive" and coordinate the advancement.
Three, gather wisdom, focus on solving government procurement management problems
The government procurement reform has a wide range of influences, a high degree of relevance, a multitude of tasks, and a variety of complex issues, involving economic, political, cultural, social, and ecological aspects. It is a worldwide management problem that needs to be promoted in depth and continuously. To deepen the government procurement reform, we must focus on researching and solving the institutional and institutional problems, mainly in the following aspects:
The first is to study and solve the problem of strengthening the procurement subject status of budget units. The Government Procurement Law introduced an expert review mechanism with reference to the bidding and bidding management system, and emphasized that open bidding was the main procurement method. This kind of system design has to some extent stripped off the responsibility and autonomy of the budget unit as the main body of procurement, resulting in no one to be responsible, unwilling to take responsibility, and difficult to blame for procurement problems and results. In particular, the newly revised budget law clearly stipulates that “each department and unit is the budget execution body of the department and unit, and is responsible for the budget execution of the department and unit, and is responsible for the results of implementation”. The inequality has further intensified. To solve this problem, it is necessary to have an operational reserve for comprehensive revision of the law and immediate practical measures. For some deep-level problems, further research and demonstration can be carried out; for some measures that can be effective in the short term, the implementation should be accelerated, such as researching through raising the standard of decentralized purchase quotas, scientifically formulating centralized procurement catalogs, rationally selecting procurement methods, relaxing the source of review experts, Strengthen measures such as information disclosure and supervision and inspection to further implement the main responsibility of the purchaser and give play to the main role.
The second is to study and solve the problem of integration of government procurement and budget management. Budget management is the foundation of fiscal work, and government procurement is an important part of budget execution. The two are closely related. In the past, in accordance with the requirements of the Government Procurement Law, we carried out government procurement budget management based on departmental budget reforms, which effectively regulated government procurement activities. However, the current working mechanism is more focused on establishing the departmental budget's directional control of procurement execution, and it has not formed the reverse feedback of the procurement results on budgeting, which has caused the phenomenon of "two skins" between budget and procurement to a certain extent. To deepen the reform of the government procurement system, we must focus on solving this problem and promoting the integration of the two. Specific reform measures can be explored from the following aspects: improving the standardization and transparency of the procurement transaction process, strengthening targeted supervision and inspection, expanding the content and scope of budget disclosure, and improving the tightness of the connection between centralized treasury payments and government procurement; "Budget first, then spend", further harden budget constraints, promote the deep integration of procurement budgets and departmental budgets; strengthen the comprehensive analysis and utilization of procurement results, and provide authority for basic expenditure quota management, project expenditure standard system construction, budget review, and asset management Promote the implementation of the government procurement management system into performance evaluation, pay more attention to cost-benefit analysis, pay attention to the degree of procurement results and the realization of policy objectives, and further reflect the combination of power and responsibility equivalence, decentralization and accountability.
The third is to study and solve the problem of specialization of centralized procurement agencies. The centralized procurement agency is the "national team, leader, and vanguard" at the level of government procurement implementation. Doing a good job of centralized procurement is not only a guarantee for the operation of government agencies and public services, but also a model for the overall implementation of government procurement. Since the implementation of the Government Procurement Law, centralized procurement agencies at all levels have continuously strengthened their own construction, standardized and efficient procurement activities, and the quality and effectiveness of centralized procurement have been obvious. Of course, we must also see that with the continuous development of the government procurement system and the deepening of reforms in related fields, the internal and external environments facing government procurement have undergone profound changes. While centralized procurement agencies are facing the traditional contradiction of growing procurement tasks and insufficient manpower, they also Facing new situations such as increasingly complicated procurement projects, high requirements for policy implementation, and increased awareness of supplier rights protection, it is necessary to seriously study and resolve in future work and continuously improve the level of specialization. Specifically, it must be strengthened from three aspects: First, we must improve the professional capabilities of centralized procurement from the aspects of implementing government procurement policies, strictly implementing various government procurement laws and regulations, strengthening fixed-point procurement and agreed supply management, and strengthening the construction of internal control mechanisms. Second, we must improve the implementation of operations from various aspects such as procurement requirements, transaction rules, and performance acceptance, strengthen and ensure the quality of centralized procurement, enhance service awareness, improve service capabilities, and improve the satisfaction of procurement units. Third, we must focus on the central work of centralized procurement agencies. Play a more professional role in the research of procurement requirements for general-purpose products and services, the formulation of procurement documents and contract standard texts, and the establishment of performance inspection and acceptance operating procedures.
The fourth is to study and solve the problem of dislocation of functions in the government procurement implementation mechanism. Under the principal-agent model and China's unique expert review mechanism, due to the absence of the main responsibility of the budget unit, the functions of the agency and the review expert have been misplaced. Review experts exercise their purchasing decision-making power and even manipulate procurement activities in violation of laws and regulations; agencies value procedural agency, neglect professional development, and seriously lack industry management. These are the important causes of many purchasing chaos and must be addressed. For example, formulate agency management methods, clarify basic professional requirements such as the number of full-time personnel in agency agencies; implement credit evaluation management, and jointly punish related untrustworthy subjects. All parties are looking forward to the introduction of these measures. The next step is to implement them.
The fifth is to study and solve the problem of improving the function of government procurement policy. The scale of government procurement itself is huge, and its policy implementation will have several times the impact of its own scale, with obvious multiplier effects. A good procurement system should effectively guarantee the operation of the public sector, strengthen public trust in the government, and implement the basic functions of value for money, through the implementation of policy functions such as green, innovation, and promoting the development of SMEs. Environmental, economic and social secondary goals. Therefore, western countries generally regard government procurement as the key to strategic management and the core of government-provided services. However, from the perspective of domestic work, the role of the government procurement policy in guiding and demonstrating its role is not sufficient.It is mainly reflected in the serious lag in the construction of the government procurement demand standard system. The demand standard has not played a decisive role in implementing the policy function. Weak awareness, as well as international rules and international environmental constraints, should be explored in terms of policy support priorities, support methods and implementation mechanisms. For example, in terms of policy support, it can be strengthened in terms of innovation, green, network security and informatization, guaranteeing and improving people's livelihood; in terms of policy support means, it can be strengthened in terms of procurement demand standards, non-tender procurement methods, etc .; On the policy implementation mechanism, we can seek breakthroughs in implementing the main responsibility of the purchaser, the internal control mechanism, information technology, and supervision and inspection.
Sixth is to study and solve the problem of lagging behind in the construction of a specialized mechanism for government procurement complaints. In recent years, suppliers' awareness of safeguarding their rights according to law has been increasing, and the number of complaints and reports received by financial departments at all levels has increased dramatically. In 2016, the number of reported cases of government procurement complaints nationwide reached 5011, 1.5 times and 3 times that of 2015 and 2014, respectively. Corresponding to this, the staff of the financial department is inadequate, the construction of specialized mechanisms is lagging behind, and it is difficult to meet the requirements of large amounts of evidence, strong professionalism and high sensitivity, and the risk of losing administrative lawsuits is increasing. First, in accordance with the requirements of the Fourth Plenary Session of the Eighteenth Central Committee of the Party to improve the administrative adjudication system and the establishment of a legal advisory system, the number of complaint-handling staff and full-time lawyers should be further increased in accordance with actual needs, and an internal control mechanism for incompatibility with processing, decision-making and incompatible positions should be established To reverse the situation in some local finance departments where only "half-persons" are responsible for handling complaints and the increasing risk of losing a case. Second, we must promote the standardization of supervision and inspection and complaint handling. Unified inspection schemes to prevent repeated inspections and reduce the burden on the units being inspected; unified inspection standards to prevent inspection blind spots; unified treatment of punishment standards to prevent "same and different punishments" and punishment results are too light and severe. Third, we must strengthen the design and experience extension of the government procurement administrative adjudication mechanism, and study the feasibility and specific path of setting up a special government procurement administrative adjudication agency in the central and provincial finances.
The seventh is to study and solve the connection between domestic government procurement system and international rules. When China joins the GPA, the bidding level must be equal to the reciprocity of the participants, and the domestic government procurement system must be consistent with the GPA rules. This is not only the prerequisite for China's entry into the GPA, but also the basic guarantee for Chinese enterprises to enter the government procurement market of the participating parties to enjoy national treatment. GPA rules are derived from the laws and practices of developed countries and reflect international practice. The consistency of the rules, on the surface, is that the domestic government procurement legal system must interface with GPA rules; from a deeper level, it is to create a market environment suitable for the operation of GPA rules. This requires China's government procurement reform to have both market awareness and an international perspective. To this end, it is necessary to stand at a new starting point, learn from the advanced experience and practices of government procurement in developed countries, further study the spirit and essence of GPA, and provide support for China to establish a legal system for government procurement that is compatible with GPA rules.
Eighth, we must study and solve the problem of improving the basic support system for government procurement. Government procurement is a complex system project. It is necessary to seek breakthroughs in frontal battlefields and to continuously improve basic support. Of course, this is a long-term and gradual work, but from the current stage of work, there are three areas that need to be strengthened: First, we must accelerate the implementation of the "Internet + government procurement" action, vigorously develop electronic procurement, and fully apply cloud computing. New technologies and new formats such as big data, big data, and construction of a “national one-net” government procurement electronics store, promoting the interconnection and information sharing between the government procurement management transaction system and third-party transaction platforms, and solving the current “information silos” and “inadequate collaboration” "The problem. Second, by building a communication bridge between the government and the market, we should give play to the role of social organizations in promoting industry self-discipline, implementing policy functions, and increasing the leeway for market opening negotiations. Third, we must continue to strengthen the government procurement cadre team and work style, and build a strong cadre team with good politics, good work style, and high ability. Local financial departments at all levels should further strengthen organizational leadership, select and match the leadership of the procurement supervision agency, consolidate and expand the spiritual results of the eight central regulations, focus on strengthening political discipline and organizational discipline, and drive clean discipline, mass discipline, work discipline, life Be disciplined. Government procurement supervision departments at all levels must firmly establish the "four consciousnesses" and "four self-confidences", resolutely maintain the party's central authority, fully implement the party's theory, line, guidelines, and policies, and be loyal and clean qualified party members. The vast number of government procurement cadres should vigorously improve the level of policy theory and business literacy, timely make up for the shortcomings and shortcomings of abilities under the new requirements of the new era, and strive to strengthen their learning abilities, political abilities, reform and innovation abilities, scientific development abilities, governing abilities, and the masses. Work skills, pay close attention to implementation skills, control risk skills.
