Effective and Transparent Public Procurement

Improving the Public Procurement Process in Slovakia

A transparent and efficient public procurement process is key for the successful implementation of public policies and reforms and is an enabler of transformation and economic growth

AmCham Slovakia is organizing a two-part discussion to improve the state of the public procurement process and create a discussion platform that centers the business sector's needs and viewpoints.

The discussion points will include:

1) Pre-market consultations

2) Professionalization of public procurement officials and training/education of those implementing the public procurement processes of public authorities

3) Mandatory publication of low-value contracts on a single platform (e.g. the website of the Public Procurement Office) in order to ensure greater transparency of the tenders

4) Simplification of the bureaucracy of the public procurement process

5) Trust-building between public authority officials responsible for public procurement and the Public Procurement Office

6) Length of the procurement procedure, its inflexibility, the conclusion of amendments to the contracts, correction system (or setting of findings - with impact, without impact, with possible impact), the criterion for evaluation of tenders, the setting of conditions for participation – not to be exclusionary and discriminatory.
