This multi-country IPA funded project is implemented by the EC/DG Enlargement and executed by a Consortium formed by the International Centre of the ILO (ITCILO – Lead Partner) and ADETEF.
The project aims to contribute towards upgrading operational performance and professionalism within the public procurement systems in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, as well as Kosovo under UNSCR 1244/99 and Turkey.
The project forms part of the European Commission’s (EC) efforts designed to overcome the challenges confronting “Enlargement” as reflected in its Communication on this subject of 2009. The installation of “well-performing public procurement systems” in each of the eight Beneficiary administrations covered by the project is also explicitly emphasized as a “priority” in the respective European Accession partnership agreements.
The project aims to contribute to the reinforcement of “administrative capacity” and “good governance” in the public procurement function through putting in place cost-effective and sustainable national procurement training delivery systems that are based on the most recent EU Procurement Directives and appropriate training methodologies as reflected in the OECD/SIGMA resource materials.
