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.
