The Pakistan defense procurement is done in accordance with the Pakistan Public Procurement Authority PPRA rules. The PPRA rules provide limited scopedetail for the bid evaluation process. The public procurement procedure of Pakistan pertaining to bid evaluation is not defined in detail and has been wholly and solely left at the discretion of the procuring agency. The loophole in the bid evaluation of the public procurement has led to many problems and fraudulent activities. This research project reviews the existing bid evaluation procedures of the United States, United Kingdom, Turkey, and Australia. This research project analyzed the bid evaluation procedure in the PPRA rules and highlighted the relevant deficiencies in the procurement procedures. Then the four contemporary procurement models of the United States, United Kingdom, Turkey, and Australia are analyzed with particular focus on the bid evaluation procedures. The comparative analysis is carried out for the four existing procurement models of various countries and based on this comparative analysis a five components of bid evaluation are recommended for incorporation in the PPRA rules to serve as a guide for the Pakistan defense contracting. We recommend that a comparative analysis of all the relevantbest practices of the bid evaluation Processes for public procurement in Turkey, the United States U.S., the United Kingdom UK, and Australia be undertaken and be used to develop a guide for Pakistan defense contracting.
