At present, in Armenia the public funds spendings are carried out with questionable effectivness and there is urgency to identify the problems for ensuring the transparency, accessibility, and accountability. In particular, the purposeful and effective management of public funds requires a clear definition of priorities based on the participatory assessment of issues.
The TAAP project aims to improve the management of the public procurement system and the accessibility of its organization.
The TAAP objectives are to foster the improvement of the organization of the procurement process by identifying obstacles, proposing solutions, and facilitate the introduction of a reform package developed within the policy agenda.
Within the framework of the TAAP project, the consortium plans to implement:
- Comprehensive research, analysis of the public procurement legislation, policies and implementation process;
- Development of policy reform proposal packages based on the data analysis;
- Advocacy for these proposals with the involvement of stakeholders, up to legislative and policy changes.
