Achievements in 2017
• The State Audit Service started monitoring procurement in Prozorro using risk indicators implemented based on TI Ukraine’s recommendations.
• Innovative procurement monitoring tools have been implemented on the DOZORRO portal, namely AI algorithms and automated risk indicators.
• In 2019, DOZORRO bot was created, which allows subscribing to tenders and quickly provides all updates. An online map of school procurement was launched.
• In 2020, an online map of COVID-19 procurement was launched.
• The DOZORRO community now consists of 25 CSOs, which have identified violations in 10,000 tenders. In 7 regions of Ukraine, systematic verifications of medication procurement have started. Together with the DOZORRO community, we have reported 12,000 violations in tenders, getting 1092 victories and 9 opened criminal investigations.
• We have upgraded our BI tools and developed new ones. That includes the Medical Procurement BI module for analysis of medication procurement. In 2019, the public BI module acquired a panel for supervisory agencies which enables quick understanding of risks in the procurement carried out by their subordinate procuring entities.
• In 2019, we successfully advocated changes to the law on public procurement, sales of property of insolvent entities and lease of national and municipal property. Before that, we participated in the development and advocacy of essential draft law for procurement monitoring No. 4738d, which was passed by the Parliament on December 21, 2017. We stopped the attempt to “kill” Prozorro with draft law No. 2126a, which contained amendments that would harm the procurement system.
• Together with the state-owned enterprise Prozorro, we have launched regional competence centers whose representatives attended over 200 cities and towns and held over 350 workshops for 20,000 participants.
• In 2019, we prepared three analytical studies: on the procurement of car fuel, on the procurement of natural gas and on the trust of businesses in Prozorro.
• We contributed to recovery of over UAH 124 million to the budget for hybrid cars for the National Police.
