Publication: Kyrgyz Republic - Public Procurement System Assessment : Using the OECD-DAC/World Bank Methodology
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.
