Prime Minister reviews the operations of the Government Procurement Agency


Prime Minister Ch.Saikhanbileg paid a working visit to the Government Procurement Agency of Mongolia to become acquainted with its operations.
During the visit he noted that certain advantages and upgrades have been made since procurement procedures were transferred to an online system, and added that now all agencies and ministers should deliver orders for items, work, services, and investments in 2016 to the Government Procurement Agency by March 10. Projects announcing bids, selection, and contracts should have their work complete within the first week of May. He went on to say that some agencies and ministries have not delivered a complete list of items, work, and services, so instructions will be given for authorities in charge of budgets to deliver a complete list of orders immediately.
The Prime Minister gave duties to the Chairman of the Information Technology, Post and Telecommunication Authority, Ts.Jadamba, to cooperate with the procurement agency on a campaign to distribute digital signatures to entities, as digital signatures are significant in registering and reviewing online tender offers. Ch.Saikhanbileg assigned the agency with duties to print a catalog which includes information about high quality domestically-made products.
During the meeting, acting director of the agency N.Otgonbaatar introduced the procedures and results of projects and work done in 2013 to 2015 with financing from the state budget. He said, “The Government Procurement Agency provided consulting and services to over 53,000 citizens and entities from 2013 to 2015, and organized 726 procurements for projects and events. A total of 44.2 billion MNT was saved from these procurements.”
