On Feb. 23, Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade Maksym Nefiodov presented ProZorro at a meeting of the WTO Committee in Geneva and invited the members of the GPA agreement to use ProZorro system for the creation of an international portal for placing of tender ads based on Open Contracting Data Standard (standards developed by the World Bank in cooperation with the American investment fund Network Omidyar). The international system fully meets the basic principles of the new Ukrainian procurement system: total transparency of data, ultimate electronization, public monitoring, access to archives.
It is noted at Nefiodov’s page on Facebook that members of the EU, USA, Canada, Norway and Switzerland were interested in this offer. Now, the Ukrainian side has to send questionnaires to the interested GPA members and to create the project concept.
