Transparency International Georgia studied 10 Georgian private companies that received the most money from simplified (direct) public procurement in 2020. Last year, all 10 companies received contracts worth a total of GEL 165 million.
In 2017-2019, public procurements with a value of GEL 1,493,385 were made for holding celebration events, out of which GEL 827,735 (about 55% of the total amount) was spent through simplified procurements.
TI Georgia has studied the planning and organization of procurements by public agencies and the share of unsuccessful procurements within the total procurements. For this purpose, we reviewed public procurements that were terminated, failed to take place, and ended with a negative result.
Transparency International Georgia continues to monitor public procurement. This time, we analyzed the results of tenders announced by municipalities in 2015.
The radical public procurement reforms in the last five years have made the Georgian system one of the most transparent in the world. TI Georgia and a number of international organizations have praised the system.
