Procurement law amended.

Amendments to the Government Procurement Law are intended to address discretion, abuse, corruption and manipulation of the procurement processes by private parties and government officials.

The substantive changes result from the work of a stakeholders group that included representatives of the government, the private sector, non-governmental organizations and members of the public. The reforms include improvements to the procurement process as well as the integration of technological tools to enhance the transparency and integrity of government purchases of goods and services. For example, the public may now participate in the bidding process as an observer, and the initial scope of purchases together with the annual Public Procurement Plan will now be posted directly on the Internet.
