More than Two Years After the Enactment of the Public Procurement Law: Where Do We Stand?
This report was produced to track the progress of the public procurement reform in Lebanon, highlighting that it still faces numerous challenges that impede the realization of its fundamental objectives, including the efficient and transparent disbursement of public funds.
The report emphasizes that these hurdles encompass delays in the implementation of key provisions, such as the establishment of the Public Procurement Authority and the Review and Complaints Authority, administrative corruption plaguing governmental institutions, and the pervasive lack of transparency across various entities.
Therefore, the report concludes with a set of recommendations aiming at addressing these challenges, with the aim of achieving the highest level of transparency and effectiveness in the use of public financial resources.
This report is part of a series of reports produced by Maharat Foundation to track the progress of reforms highlighted in the Lebanon Reform, Recovery and Reconstruction Framework (3RF) which is part of a comprehensive response to the massive explosion on the Port of Beirut on August 4, 2020, launched by the European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN) and the World Bank Group (WBG).
