The Public Procurement Regulatory Commission (PPRC) does not have a strategy to ensure the continuity of the e-procurement system, and it is also not efficient enough to manage problems in the system, while it continues to face a lack of staff. Thus, it was announced in the Committee for Oversight of Public Finances during the review of the information technology audit report "Electronic system of public procurement e-procurement", in which the chairman of the PPRC Osman Vishaj reported.

The MP from the Democratic Party of Kosovo, Hajdar Beqa, said that e-procurement should also be connected with other government systems.

For this, the chairman of PPRC, Osman Vishaj, has stated that the audit results show that the electronic e-procurement system has helped increase efficiency in the development of public procurement.

During his report to the Committee for the Oversight of Public Finances, Vishaj said that they face a lack of staff.

Meanwhile, MP Beqa has asked if this institution has any role to influence single-source contracts.

Regarding this, Vishaj said that if they compare the year 2023 with 2022, there is a slight decrease in value.

On the other hand, the chairperson of the committee, Hykmete Bajrami, asked if there are cases when a contracting authority does not notify the PPRC at all and starts the negotiated procedure.

Unlike previous years, Vishaj said that every negotiated procedure is published on the e-procurement website.

Meanwhile, the MPs agreed that the audit report should not be sent for consideration in the Assembly session, since there were few findings in this report.
