ProZorro saves over UAH 19 bln of budget funds in one year - PM
In a year since the country has switched to public procurement via the ProZorro system for all above-threshold tenders, the number of tenders grew by 550%, the number of participants – by 384%, and the sum of the announced tenders soared by almost 10 times, from UAH 75 billion to UAH 725 billion, which is a dazzling result, Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said.
"Thanks to ProZorro in a year we have managed to save UAH 19.1 billion of budget funds. This is a large figure that has a potential to growth! I congratulate the entire team of the ProZorro public e-procurement system, the Economic Development and Trade Ministry of Ukraine and personally Maksym Nefyodov [First Deputy Economic Development and Trade Minister] on this. I wish you further growth!" Groysman wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
In April 2016, the first phase of the introduction of the ProZorro system was launched. From August 1, 2016, the use of the system became obligatory for state-sustained customers. Above-threshold tenders are tenders which sums exceed the costs set in Ukrainian legislation.
