"Effective public procurement in the service of economic growth" is a two-year project to improve the efficiency and transparency of public procurement in Serbia, implemented by NALED with the support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), and its value is 1.36 million euros.

The project envisages the improvement of digital solutions in the implementation of public procurement, including e-Portal (in cooperation with the Office for IT and eGovernment) and the Register of Bidders (in cooperation with APR), providing recommendations for implementation and improvement of regulations, development of guides and examples of good practice, organizing trainings and study visits to transfer knowledge and experience from EU member states, as well as organizing round tables and dialogues with stakeholders.

The proposal of this project is designed to strengthen both contracting authorities and bidders, but also the wider society - NGOs, media, judicial and control bodies, and its general objectives and desired impacts are:

  • Improving the impact of public spending on competition and market development,
  • Improving the effectiveness of public procurement (quality-price ratio) and the impact of public spending on the environment and social inclusion,
  • Contribution to the reduction of corruption and irregularities in public procurements, as well as building trust in the public procurement system,
  • Contribute to recovery from the effects of COVID 19 through more efficient public spending.
