Last updated: October 2018

Classification:

Concrete: Concrete | New: Somewhat New | Ambitious: Ambitious

Notes:

October 2018 update:The Public Procurement Agency maintains a publicly available register of all tenders launched in the country. According to the Public Procurement Act, all public bodies are obliged to publish tendering documentation and certain set of information for each separate procedure on their websites. With the implementation of the new e-procurement system, it is expected that information about all tenders conducted in the country will be available at a single portal. The system should be fully implemented by 1 January 2021. Also, in June 2018 the PPA proposed amendments to the Public Procurement Act, which among others provide for publication of all agreements with subcontractors, concluded between the latter and the selected contractor. These measures should be recognized as a step forward to increasing of transparency of the public procurement. However, high standards are yet to be accomplished.
