    Kyrgyz Republic - Public Procurement System Assessment : Using the OECD-DAC/World Bank Methodology
    (Washington, DC, 2007-11-10) World Bank
    This 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.

    Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia : Country Fiduciary Assessment
    (Washington, DC, 2007-08) World Bank
    This Country Fiduciary Assessment (CFA) follows upon the Country Financial Accountability Assessment (CFAA) issued in 2003 and the Country Procurement Assessment Report (CPAR) issued in 2002. Because procurement is integral to the concept of public financial management (PFM), this CFA integrates procurement and financial management assessment into a single report. The report has three objectives: first is to provide the Bank and other donors with an updated assessment of fiduciary progress since 2003. This includes: (i) fiduciary risk related to the budget environment in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia; and (ii) need for supporting meaningful progress, possibly through future development policy lending instruments. The second objective is to assist the government in its commitment to Public Financial Management (PFM) reforms to secure more efficient and effective use of public sector resources. Finally, the third is to help the government measure progress in procurement reform by comparing operations with international standards, providing information to monitor system performance and identifying weaknesses.
