More than 250 bidders and procuring entities had the opportunity to get better acquainted with the electronic public procurement procedure, which will be applied from July 1, as the new Law on Public Procurement comes into force. The law passed towards the end of last year prescribes that all communication and data exchange in the procedure is carried out electronically on the new Website, which was presented at the "Towards the new Law on Public Procurement" webinar.
Lower costs, easier supervision, better data visibility procedure standardization will be the main advantages of electronic implementation of this procedure, and the webinar participants were given clear instructions for using the Website by Croatian public procurement experts Dean Firtelj and Teja Kolar from both the bidder’s and purchaser’s points of vew.
In the second part of the webinar, representatives of the Public Procurement Administration, Aleksandra Krivokapić and Dragan Cvijić, answered pre-set questions from bidders and purchasers, and during the presentation, another 60 questions were received, which speaks of great interest in this topic.
The "Towards a New Law on Public Procurement" webinar was organized in cooperation with the Public Procurement Directorate, within the Public-Private Dialogue for Development project implemented by NALED and funded by USAID.
