At the third meeting of the Coalition for Monitoring Public Procurement on December 13, 2023, the Open Spending EU Coalition related their experience on a systemic approach to transparency in public spending. Another topic addressed was the shortcomings identified by the Association for Efficient and Accountable Governance in the monitoring process for health procurements carried out by the Center for Centralized Public Procurement in Healthcare.
The Coalition for Monitoring Public Procurement was created by the Institute for Development and Social Initiatives (IDIS) Viitorul, within the project Increasing the Integrity of Public Procurement in Moldova, implemented with Partnership for Transparency (PTF). The coalition aims to support public procurement reforms in the Republic of Moldova. Over 20 civil society organizations, investigative journalists, experts, and independent monitors from the Republic of Moldova are members of the Coalition.
