WHAT I DO

Currently, to boost my career and bring economic and social value for strengthening my experiences, Since September 2020, I have started to complete the Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) program. This program will give me the necessary tools to contribute to the production and dissemination of applied science in project management and business administration.

Moreover, I am holding a Master of Science in Public Procurement Management for Sustainable Development from the Technical University of Turin, Italy, coupled with several executive trainings on Project Procurement, Contract Management,…etc enhance my skills and experience in addressing development challenges.

I believe the strategic role of Procurement in achieving development effectiveness goals by recognizing that countries are looking to be more efficient in their public spending to invest more in essential public services such as education and infrastructure services and enrich development outcomes. In summary, Procurement could strongly support countries to achieve value for money with integrity in delivering sustainable development.

My key technical strengths are maintaining of whole Procurement cycle under the framework of Multilateral Development Banks like the World Bank, Asian Development Bank,…etc; public procurement reform; Procurement for large infrastructure projects; training and capacity building in the area of Procurement; Management of complex civil works procurement process; contract management, and contractual Dispute Resolution.

I had pleasure of working with Amirmehdi Asghari for many years while I was working with Islamic Development Bank and World Bank as Consultant. Through my working experience with him, I find him a consistent and highly competent strategic Project Procurement and Contract Management Specialist who often thinks outside the box while still aligning with the goals of the organization. He has strong technical skills on project procurement and advance knowledge on Contract Management issues and solutions-one of his strongest assets.

Joao de Almeida, International Public Procurement Consultant

Amirmehdi Asghari was a fantastic student. He is hard working, passionate, analytical, capable of studying in depth a complex subject but also of summarizing it with great clarity when he was studying his M.S.C in University of Torino, Italy on “Public Procurement Management for Sustainable Development”. He did this always with a smile on his face and intensity of attention. He has strong personality, voices his opinion frankly within the right boundaries.
