Monitoring of Public Procurement in 2011-2012

Description: The goal of the project is to assess how the procurement system of Armenia is designed vs. how it operates in practice, including the study of selection processes and observation of complaint mechanisms. This is achieved by fostering transparency, accountability and participation in the fields of procurement through monitoring and analyzing procedures and processes, raising awareness and generating public debate, initiating advocacy and lobbying for appropriate reforms.
Results: Raised awareness of stakeholders through exposure to monitoring results via mass media; use of monitoring results to advocate for improvements in the procurement systems, for litigation initiated in cases of direct evidence of corruption or other regulatory violations; draft recommendations for improvement of legislation, procedures and enforcement related to public procurement in Armenia; legal assistance to companies involved or seeking to be involved in public procurement processes in Armenia.
