The public consultation on the public procurement law, held for 60 days from November 6 to January 4, has concluded, having gathered around 1,000 opinions, the Financial Services Bureau (DSF) informed in a statement.
The DSF noted that the three clarification sessions, held by the bureau to encourage the participation of different sectors, were attended by a total of 500 participants, including individual citizens as well as representatives of associations and public officials. Their opinions and suggestions were collected for analysis and reference.
The bill proposes to promote changes in the current government procurement regime, creating a legal framework for public procurement through which the government seeks to effectively promote and balance equality, efficiency and accountability systems.
Although the preliminary statistics indicate that only around 200 opinions have been officially collected, the DSF estimates that the total number of opinions may exceed a thousand, citing the significant attention paid to the topic by the population and sectors of society.
Now the government will organize and analyze all the opinions and comments collected in order to present a final report, which should give some indication of what the final proposal’s draft might include.
