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) and is being implemented by a Georgia-based civil society organization - Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI) together with 5 partner organizations from each country in the Eurasian region covered by the project.
The project aims to first elaborate 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.
In its initial stage, the TPPR project only covers six countries in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) region: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. However, it plans to scale the methodology up to larger regions in the future.
The project is being implemented by the following organizations:
Azerbaijan – Transparency International (TI)
Belarus – BIPART
Moldova – Expert-Grup
Ukraine – Transparency International (TI)
