Public procurement

Integrity and transparency in public procurement are essential attributes of good governance in a democratic state. Public procurement is sensitive and at risk of corruption, therefore, requires control and monitoring from civil society in order to protect the public interest of the citizens. IDIS "Viitorul" believes that civil society has an important role in reforming the public procurement system. Therefore, an open dialogue between Government, civil society, and the business community is the key element in this process. Our main objective is to contribute to increased transparency, integrity and efficiency of public procurement in Moldova, but also the society's trust in the fact that public money is used in the public interest.
