Public Procurement Sector Assessments

2010 EBRD Regional Public Procurement Sector Assessment

As part of the EBRD's efforts to promote sound business practices in the countries where it works the first EBRD regional public procurement sector assessment was conducted in 2010. The assessment, in line with the mission of the EBRD, reviewed national public procurement legislation and national public procurement practice in 28 countries of EBRD operations. The main aim of the assessment was to evaluate the level of development of public procurement laws and to identify elements of law and practice that reduce the efficiency and economy of the public procurement process in the EBRD’s countries of operations.The final results of the 2010 assessment were published in a summary assessment report and as country profiles, describing findings on each EBRD country of operation.

Report on public procurement laws and practice in the EBRD region, EBRD 2011, in English and Russian. The assessment report, illustrated with selected research data, aims to evaluate the public procurement policy development in the EBRD region and its sub-regional country groupings. It also endeavours to discuss elements of local procurement practice that were identified as potentially reducing the efficiency and economy of the public procurement function.
