The project Transparent Public Procurement Rating (TPPR) – Assessing Public Procurement Legislation and the Enforcement Process in the Eurasian Region is funded by Open Society Institute Budapest Foundation (OSI) & Hivos, which is being implemented by a Georgia-based civil society organization - Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI) together with partner organizations from various regions.
The project and its website provide a common standard for assessing public procurement legislation in different countries and then use this standard to assess the implementation of the legislation for the purpose of identifying actual problems and laying ground for their reform and development.
The methodology of the assessment provides the possibility to compare target public procurement legislations according to principal values of a well-functioning, transparent and accountable public procurement system. Experts assess the legislations once in two years, whereas the implementation of the law is assessed every year.
Originally, focusing on Eastern Partnership countries, currently, TPPR network operates globally.
