Moldova’s public procurement system is hampered by a low degree of transparency, competitiveness, and compliance with the state’s legal and institutional framework, according to an IDIS report produced in connection with a PASOS project.
Eight NGOs have been selected to receive grants from Powers in Empowerment, an EU-funded PASOS program to improve the ability of civil society to monitor policymaking and public services in Eastern Partnership countries.
Call For Grant Applications: Civil Society Monitoring Of Public Service Delivery And Public Accountability
Grants supporting civil society actions to monitor the effectiveness of government resource allocation and public service delivery are being made available under Partners in Empowerment, an EU-funded project led by PASOS. Deadline to apply is 20 September 2015.
Three experts from PASOS-affiliated organizations will be participating on panels at the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Conference in Riga May 20-21.
Moldova leads the countries of the Eastern Partnership in implementing reforms required to join the European Union, according to an annual index of European integration co-produced by PASOS.
The EU needs to focus its attention on relations with those Eastern Partner countries that are willing to cooperate more closely and who truly wish to integrate with the Union, politically, economically and socially, according to a PASOS analysis presented to members of the European Parliament.
PASOS is leading a group of NGOs that have launched a project to improve the ability of civil society to monitor policymaking and public services in Eastern Partnership countries.
