What is the public problem that the commitment will address? According to the transparent public procurement rating (https://www.tpp-rating.org/page/rus/country/kyrgyzstan), Kyrgyz Republic received 65.9 points out of 100.

The lack of transparency in public procurement and the public procurement web portal (www.zakupki.gov.kg) deficiencies lead to decreased competition among suppliers, increased public procurement expenditures and continued corruption in the public procurement.
What is the commitment? Changes will be introduced to the legislation in the field of public procurement to expand and clarify the list of data subject to mandatory publication in the open format, taking into account the best international practices.
The public procurement web portal will also be improved to make it possible for disclosure of full text of contracts and information on contract terms performance. This will also facilitate audit and public monitoring of public procurement, including filing complaints to the Independent Complaints Body.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Introducing changes to legislation in the field of public procurement and improving web portal will limit use of non-competitive procurement methods, increase efficiency of the public procurement and reduce corruption.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? Transparency: Ensuring the public procurement data disclosure in open format.

Citizen Participation: Introducing transparent complaint filing mechanism by any interested person to the Independent Complaints Body in case of corruption or violation of legal requirements.
