EAEU improves approaches to reporting in public procurement 01 Mar 2024 EAEU improves approaches to reporting in public procurement Relevant issues of collecting and generating reports in the field of public (municipal) procurement, including the adoption of methodical recommendations for its collection and generation, were considered at the meeting involving representatives of authorized bodies of the Eurasian Economic Union in the field of public procurement, chaired by Zhanar Adikova, Director of the Department for Competition and Public Procurement Policy of the Eurasian Economic Commission. Due to completed ratification by the EAEU Member States of the Second Major Protocol amending the Treaty on the EAEU, the generation of reporting in the field of public (municipal) procurement in the EAEU Member States becomes mandatory as from 2024. During 2015-2023, such report generation was non-binding. Annual reviews "Public (Municipal) Procurement of the Eurasian Economic Union Member States (Analysis of Reporting Indicators)" are available on the Eurasian Economic Commission's portal. 25 indicators have been determined, including, for example, the number of procurement procedures conducted, bids submitted and contracts concluded in terms of procurement methods, including electronic ones, the value of concluded contracts by source of financing, procurement methods, country of origin of goods, works and services and country of registration of suppliers. Reporting by type of goods, works and services and country of origin is introduced for the first time. For reference The Protocol on amendments to the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union dated May 29, 2014, signed on March 31, 2022, envisages an amendment to Paragraph 29 of Annex No. 25 to the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union stating that the EAEU Member States shall ensure information openness and transparency of procurement, including through the generation of information (reporting) in the field of public (municipal) procurement, including on indicators and formats approved by the Commission. The indicators and reporting formats were approved by Decision No. 179 of the Eurasian Economic Commission's Board dated December 29, 2023 (section 27 of the list of indicators, formats F27.01.01 and F27.01.04, F27.02.01 and F27.02.04). Recommendation No. 26 of the Eurasian Economic Commission's Board dated November 3, 2015.
29 Feb 2024 The EEC considers single window mechanism The working group on developing priority tools for implementing the single window mechanism in the legal regulation of foreign economic activity in the Eurasian Economic Union held its meeting. Representatives of the customs cooperation block of the Eurasian Economic Commission and authorized bodies of the EAEU countries involved in projects for the development of national single window mechanisms took part in this meeting.  The participants considered issues related to a survey of interested government bodies, legal entities and business communities of the countries of the Union to assess the priority of tools for implementing the single window mechanism. Moreover, the group’s specialists discussed the upcoming demonstration of pilot projects in 2024 to introduce national single window mechanisms in the Member States in accordance with the Strategic Directions for the Development of Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025. Representatives of the parties discussed the approaches and form of conducting this survey, as well as elements of demonstrating pilot projects in the EAEU states. One of the goals of such work is to ensure convenience and transparency of the process of conducting foreign economic activity for businesses and improving the quality of services provided thereto. For reference By its Order No.4 dated April 5, 2021, the EEC Council issued its Action Plan to Implement Strategic Directions for Developing the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025, where it defined measures, mechanisms and activities for the implementation of Strategy 2025. The following activities are defined in paragraph 9.4 of the Action Plan: – prepare acts of the Union bodies to ensure the normative consolidation of priority instruments for the implementation of the national single window mechanism; – organize events aimed at demonstrating pilot projects for the implementation of national single window mechanisms in order to ensure their future compatibility and the possibility of data exchange.
