Public procurement in Kazakhstan is regulated by the 2015 Law on State Procurement. the PPL applies to ministries, state agencies, and companies and enterprises in which the state holds more than 50% of the shares. As Kazakhstan is part of the Eurasian Economic Union, the PPL of the country complies with the standards of the Union. In 2014 the law was amended to allow economic operators from member countries of the EEU to participate in public procurement tenders on equal terms with domestic suppliers.
The procurement system in Kazakhstan is decentralized with different government agencies and companies managing specific procurement projects. The functions of law-making, monitoring and coordination are divided within two state entities. The Ministry of Finance of Kazakhstan develops procurement policies and the Committee for Public Procurement is responsible for enforcing the laws and regulations on public procurement, as well as gathering statistical information on public procurement.
Kazakhstan has a single portal for hosting public procurement information. All procedures are 100% electronic and paper-based procurement is not possible for competitive procedures. The new portal - goszakup.gov.kz offers detailed information (most of it in JSON format) on the procedures starting from the planning till execution, despite the fact that the PPL is not so clear about transparency of certain pieces of information or their format.
