Chapter 10 concerns the plurilateral agreement on Government Procurement, one of two plurilateral agreements in force. This plurilateral agreement only binds a subset of the total WTO membership. This chapter reviews the requirement that when purchasing goods for their own government consumption (and what qualifies as this), signatories must do so on a nondiscriminatory basis from supplies originating in other signatories of the GPA Agreement. Further it discusses the transparency requirements and the methods for enforcing the GPA.
