Ring Administration Module Ring Administration Module (RAM) is an Excel based application developed by the World Bank It helps countries which are participating in the global Ring Comparison to provide the ICP Global Office with information about products that can be priced in their countries. The responses are captured in a structured manner allowing the Global Office to analyze and create a common Ring Product list efficiently. The RAM displays a list of products (otherwise known as Structured Product List) priced by each of the six ICP regions, and the specifications to help identify these products. It also displays pictures of products.
