AIS has carried out several activities under the Improvement of the Integrity of Public Contractors Project, aiming at creating an impact through two components of the project: i. strengthening civic actors, media, and non-governmental organizations ii. Public pressure for improving Public Procurement legislation and practice in the country
Regarding the second component, AIS became officially part of the working table with the Albanian Government in drafting the new Public Procurement Law. Our organization presented its findings and proposals regarding problems of legislation on public procurement, and mainly the integrity of public contractors at this working table (government; agencies; parliament; international assistance bodies). Also, AIS has proposed that the Government should develop a public procurement strategy, and is already working on proposing the priorities that such strategy should have, such as improved digitalization of e-Procurement and the practices of scanning competitors through shortlisting in the process of public procurement.
