European Bank for Reconstruction and Development : Mongolia supports SMEs with e-Procurement

Deputy Prime Minister Terbishdagva to meet with top procurement experts

On Tuesday, 19 November, international partners announced their intention to work with Mongolia to enhance its new e-Procurement system, which will make public tenders more accessible to small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
To address this, key public officials will meet this week to discuss procurement policy at a workshop organized by the European Union (EU), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and theUN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).
At the event, participants will consider how to adapt international best practices for public procurement. "In Europe, sound public procurement policies lead to more transparency, accountability, and cost savings, explained Matthias Reusing, First Secretary for the EU's Delegation to Mongolia. "This means more effective management of public finance.
"In Georgia, we have found that e-Procurement, simpler procedures, and greater transparency will benefit the SME sector. explained Tato Urjumelashvili, Chairman of the Competition and State Procurement Authority.
"We are fully committed to using international best practices to achieve excellent transparency in our operations across the country, explained Enkhjargal Damdin, Director of the Government Procurement Agency.
The current Government programme requires the Procurement Agency to work towards having all procurement done through the e-Procurement system to reduce opportunities for corruption and the confusion of complex public procurement procedures.
After the event, Deputy Prime Minister Terbishdagva will meet with procurement experts to offer him an overview of which procurement reform options will benefit the SME sector.
"Simplified procedures will create opportunities for SMEs, explained Matthieu Le Blan, the EBRD's Head of Office in Mongolia. "We expect that entrepreneurs will capitalise on these opportunities.
