Public Funding Opportunity: Argentina Secures USD 80 Million World Bank Loan to Improve Public Digital Services

The loan, approved by the World Bank on March 30, will finance the Digital Inclusion and Innovation in Public Services Project, aiming to improve access to digital services and efficiency. The project is headed by the Public Innovation Secretariat, with its Directorate of Sector and Special Projects (Dirección de Programas y Proyectos Sectoriales y Especiales) responsible for all financial management and procurement.

The funding covers online document management, digital signatures, digital civic registries and citizen-oriented platforms, among other areas. The World Bank details that USD 19.6 million will be assigned to digital public services, USD 20.38 million to cross-cutting management systems, data management and innovation and USD 45.2 million to expand technological infrastructure.

The news opens up procurement opportunities in Argentina, suggesting that public digital transformation projects will move forward regardless of the country’s financial difficulties.

At Access Partnership, we monitor public funding developments and analyse government budgets, promptly alerting clients of relevant news and helping them engage stakeholders to ultimately secure procurement opportunities. If you are interested in these services, please contact Pablo Marzocca.
