Proposals to Reduce Corruption and Advance Implementation of Public Procurements

on .

The proposed measures are developed on the basis of in-depth research of corruption risks, systematized in the research paper “Mapping Corruption Risks in Public Procurements of Enterprises Owned by the Government and Municipalities” and individual screening of 37 state-owned enterprises founded by the Government, the City of Skopje and Municipalities of Gostivar, Kavadarci and Struga, which provides an overview of key parameters that reflect the manner in which they implement public procurements, as well as their human resource capacity and internal policies. Weaknesses noted in all previously conducted research papers and analyses have confirmed the need to enhance integrity and reduce corruption risks at public enterprises and joint stock companies.
Recommendations presented in this document are drafted as part of the project “Towards Accountable Enterprises”, implemented by the Center for Civil Communications with financial support from the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Skopje in the period 2019-2021, and aimed at establishing sustainable mechanisms to advance implementation of public procurements and to strengthen integrity in the process of public spending under tender procedures organized by state-owned enterprises founded by the Government, the City of Skopje and Municipalities of Gostivar, Kavadarci and Struga.
In February 2021, the Center for Civil Communications presented the Government of the Republic of North Macedonia with portion of proposed measures, as presented in this document, as contribution in the process of drafting the Government’s Action Plan to Fight Corruption.
