CRD/TI Armenia invited representatives of state structures, international organizations, NGOs, educational institutions and media outlets on December 26, 2007 to present its findings on the assessment of public procurement system in Armenia. The study aimed at revelation of corruption risks and development of recommendations to increase the transparency of procurement processes in the country.

The assessment was conducted with assistance of the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation Armenia, in accordance with the methodology developed by Transparency International. Methodology included review of institutional, perception, performance and context indicators. Institutional and performance indicators showed lower corruption risks, while more corruption risks were revealed within the context and perception.

It was the second time when the methodology was applied after the pilot assessment in Latin America.
