This report is based on in-depth monitoring of 40 public procurements for goods, services and works related to COVID-19 protection whose contracts were awarded in the first half of 2021, i.e. in the period from 1 January to 30 June 2021. Targeted public procurements represent 38% of all COVID-19 tender procedures organized in the analyzed period (total of 106 tender procedures). The value of these tender procedures accounts for 5.7 million euros, i.e. 36% of cumulative value of all COVID-19 public procurements organized in the analyzed period (15.7 million euros).
This effort implied in-depth monitoring of public procurements and detection of corruption risks in all stages of public procurements, from procurement needs assessment and planning, through organization of procurement procedures, to contract award and performance.
