Ulica ZAVNOBIH-a 13, Tuzla

Public procurement in many countries are used as a tool for improving efficiency of the process of products and services procurement as well as a tool for making cost savings in the public sector. Advantages of e-procurement are strengthening transparency, efficiency, healthy competition and provide best values for the invested money. Switch from paper based procurement to e-procurement increases service quality of contracting authorities and sets up the adequate system of announcing, awarding and managing contracts.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina, e-procurement system was established late 2014, but it is still in the early stage of development. On the e-procurement portal in BiH e-announcements about public procurements are available but there is still no conditions to develop further options of the e-procurement portal.
Aim of this expert debate is to point at the main obstacles in the development process of e-procurement in Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as to present possible solutions at this stage of development. At the expert debate recommendations for the improvements of the e-procurement system will be presented which came out as the results of the study written by Analitika Center for Social Research.
