Description

To ensure transparency, accountability and lawfulness of public procurement, the government embarked on improving further the existing procurement system and enhancing the institutional capacity of public procurement bodies. It planned to introduce a reporting system by the authorized body to disclose more detailed information about procurements made by contracting entities. Additionally, to minimize the risks of conflicts of interests and exercise better control over compliance with public procurement procedures, it planned to develop code of conduct for procurement officials. Meanwhile, continuous training and development programs will be developed and introduced. Also, by the end of 2013 it is planned to fully implement and ensure effective use of e-procurement systems to enhance transparency and competition in public procurement. The official websites http://www.gnumner.am and http://www.armeps.am will be improved in order to function more effectively and provide complete information on procurement procedures.
