Public Resources

Problem

Public resources, such as natural resources, public spaces, historical-cultural monuments as well as public finance are often mismanaged as a consequence of corruption. About 70% of all mining deposits of Armenia are being exploited, the surface of green areas in public parks in Yerevan has been decreased from 74% to 30%, and about 40% of old historical-architectural buildings in the center of Yerevan have been destroyed, changed or otherwise endangered to serve merely group interests. Single source procurement affects competition and the flawed tenders result in inflated prices of procured goods, services and works, which bring to the waste of taxpayers' money.

Mismanagement of public resources goes back to deficiencies of respective legislation, poor performance of institutions, non-transparent and unlawful decision-making processes.

Our objectives

TIAC strives to promote the legal framework for the management of public resources, including the implementation of regulations as well as monitoring and advocating in the areas of natural and urban resources. We also observe public finance to ensure transparency of public expenditures and compliance with good practices.
