    Despite the difficult economic conditions during the full-scale war, the electronic procurement platform Prozorro remains an effective tool. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Economy of Ukraine Nadiia Bigun, commenting on the annual results of the Prozorro electronic public procurement system.

    "The results of work in 2022 show that, despite all the difficulties and challenges, the Prozorro electronic procurement system works without failures and demonstrates flexibility and ability to change, even in wartime. Moreover, international partners also highly appreciated the efficiency of Ukrainian public procurement. The Prozorro e-procurement system, including the Prozorro Market electronic catalogues, was recognized as meeting the requirements for e-procurement for World Bank-financed operations," said Deputy Minister of Economy of Ukraine Nadiia Bigun.

    As for financial results, since the beginning of the war, Prozorro platform can boast with the following achievements: 

    • 94,000 tenders for UAH 120 billion have been held;
    • more than 23,000 enterprises became participants of competitive procurement;
    • the difference between the total amount that public procurers planned to spend on their procurements and the amount for which contracts were concluded through tender procedures amounted to UAH 6 billion;
    • in total, more than 2 million contracts for UAH 311 billion were reported in the electronic system.

    After the Government returned mandatory procurement to Prozorro in July 2022, about half of the pre-war level of procurement takes place in the system. This reduction can be explained both by the reduction of expenditures for non-critical needs and by the fact that procurement for defense and critical infrastructure is carried out without the use of Prozorro. 

    Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the Cabinet of Ministers has changed the rules of public procurement to adapt them to the new reality, which requires faster provision of needs. Thus, thanks to the new procedure - open bidding with specific features, which was introduced by Resolution No. 1178, it was possible to reduce the average duration of the tender by almost half - to 22 days.

    Instead, the procedure of requesting the price of the offer in Prozorro Market can be carried out even faster, its average duration is 11 days. Thanks to the new rules, procuring entities can use Prozorro Market without any limitations on the amount, which significantly reduces the administrative burden on procuring entities. As a result, the volume of procurement in the electronic catalog has tripled compared to 2021 - up to UAH 1.2 billion.
