Frequent annulment of tender procedures as one of the major problems in public procurement

Frequent annulment of tender procedures one of the major and most lasting problems in the system of public procurements in our country. The fact that every fourth tender procedure is annulled puts the country on the top rank worldwide according to another infamous phenomenon in public procurements.

The problem with massive annulment of tender procedures did not subside with any of the several measures taken in the past, and more recently with the new Law on Public Procurements, which reduced the list of legal grounds for tender annulment. This shows that institutions easily and daily resort to tender annulment when certain matters are not what they expected, because the analyses do not allow the conclusion that, when annulling tender procedures, they are motivated by the idea of defending the public interest in public procurements.

Tender annulments delay procurement of necessary goods, services and works; create additional costs for repeated organization of procurement procedures; increase economic and legal uncertainty of companies and undermine the trust in public procurements because of the conviction that tender procedures are annulled because they cannot be rigged.

Transparency is not sufficient to improve state-of-affairs in public procurements

Publication of more information and documents related to tender procedures in the last several years has contributed to increased transparency of the system of public procurements in the country, but this trend was not accompanied with improved integrity and accountability of the institutions that implement tender procedures. Hence, implementation of public procurements in the country should be paid much greater attention; the capacity of entities implementing tender procedures should be significantly improved; the Bureau of Public Procurements (BPP) should be enabled to perform its increased competences, especially those related to control over implementation of tender procedure; the trend on taking measures aimed to further improve transparency and openness of public procurements should continue, with parallel emphasis on improving other aspects of public procurements, such as accountability and integrity.
