Increasing the integrity of public procurement
The project “Increasing the integrity in public procurement” is implemented by Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDIS) "Viitorul", in partnership with Partnership for Transparency Fund (USA).
September 2020 - February 2023
Aim of the project:
Supporting procurement reforms in Moldova that will increase transparency and fairness of public procurement through empowering citizens to hold relevant institutions accountable. This will be accomplished through training civil society organizations to serve as watchdogs by monitoring public procurements.
Outputs of the project will be at least 15 organizations in Moldova, CSOs and journalists, that have been trained in understanding risks in procurement, important red flags, risk indicators and risk evaluation. In addition to IDIS and TI-Moldova, between three and six of the trained CSOs will be selected for 18 months of funding to engage in actual monitoring, receiving mentoring and support from the project team.
Outcomes will include trained civil society watchdogs that will identify, quantify, document and report abuses/irregularities to relevant Moldovan authorities for action and redress.
The most tangible expected impact of the project would be actions taken by procurement entities and oversight/enforcement bodies to remedy irregularities identified by the CSO monitors and enforce the law in criminal/corruption cases uncovered by the monitoring. The result would be more effective use of public funds and improved delivery of good and services to the citizens of Moldova.
