PublicationKyrgyz Republic : Country Fiduciary Assessment Update 2007(Washington, DC, 2007-11-10) World BankThis fiduciary assessment makes recommendations to strengthen public financial management in the Kyrgyz Republic, including procurement. This report takes stock of developments since 2002 within the Public Financial Management (PFM) Framework. It identifies the recommendations that have been implemented, and it lays out a road map to implement remaining reforms. It provides a basis upon which the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic (GOK) can formulate a capacity-building plan to improve its fiduciary system. Donors can use the results of this update in two ways: first, to develop strategies for assisting the capacity development plan; and second, to mitigate risks in individual operations. The country can use the information to monitor its fiduciary systems and the extent to which ongoing reform initiatives are improving performance. This assessment was prepared in close collaboration with government counterpart teams and other donors. The teams analyzed relevant pieces of legislation, gathered feedback through workshops, and conducted interviews with the Government, the private sector, and civil society. The report incorporates comments on earlier drafts and suggestions received from the government, including the Ministry of Finance (MOF), the Chamber of Accounts (COA), Ministry of Economic Development and Trade and the State Agency on Public Procurement and Materials Reserve (SAPPMR). PublicationKyrgyz Republic - Public Procurement System Assessment : Using the OECD-DAC/World Bank Methodology(Washington, DC, 2007-11-10) World BankThis procurement assessment provides a basis whereby the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic (GOK) can formulate a capacity-building plan to improve its purchasing system; donors can devise strategies for assisting the capacity development plan and mitigate risks in individual operations that they decide to fund; and the country can monitor system performance and the success of reform initiatives in improving outcomes. It incorporates results from analyses of procurement legislation and feedback from various stakeholders in the procurement system, including government agencies, procuring entities, consultants, contractors, suppliers, and representatives of civil society. The Public Procurement Law (PPL) of the Kyrgyz Republic took effect on May 24, 2004. The PPL provides for a decentralized procurement system. All users of central and local budgetary funds are now responsible for conducting procurement in accordance with the standards of the new law. Since the December 2002 Country Procurement Assessment Report (CPAR), several significant developments have occurred in the public procurement system of the Kyrgyz Republic. In the new PPL, the government implemented the majority of the Bank's recommendations. Although the PPL clearly assigns the procurement oversight and support roles to the State Agency on Public Procurement and Materials Reserve (SAPPMR), the agency is unable to fulfill these roles efficiently and objectively. It lacks adequate capacity. The SAPPMR must review and verify the information contained in tender and contract award notices to ensure that the information is accurate and in compliance with the PPL. The SAPPMR provides little guidance to procuring entities to ensure effective PPL implementation.
