Public procurement for project partners from Belarus

Belarusian project partners have to respect procurement rules in the context of European Community external actions. These rules must be applied in all Belarusian organisations financed from ENPI funds and listed as project partners in the application form (also by public institutions) when e.g. selecting a service provider, a first level controller or purchasing equipment.

The procurement procedures must comply with provisions of the Annex IV "Procurement by grant Beneficiaries in the context of European Community external actions" (download in RU) to the Practical Guide to Contract procedures for EU External actions (PRAG) and other sections of PraG, where necessary. Please note that only the English version of the documents is the official legal text.

The tender documents must be drafted in accordance with best international practice. This can be checked by comparing them to the PRAG for procurement of services, supplies and works. INTERACT ENPI has developed a guide on secondary procurement in ENPI CBC programmes (download in Belarusian, Russian and English). i.e. procurement also carried out by the Belarusian project partners. It has examined the procurement legislation in Belarus and compared it to the PRAG rules.
