Notice Abstract

EBRD UNCITRAL Public Procurement Reform Initiative The 1994 Model Law on Procurement of Goods, Construction and Services adopted by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law ("UNCITRAL") has been the basis for national public procurement legislation in many post-Soviet states that gained independence, including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Slovakia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. In 2011, UNCITRAL replaced the 1994 Model Law with the 2011 UNCITRAL Model Law on Public Procurement, which reflected new international best practice, including the use of electronic communications in public tenders. The EBRD UNCITRAL Public Procurement Initiative, established by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD" or the "Bank") and UNCITRAL Secretariat was launched at the EBRD Annual Meeting in May 2011 in Astana, Kazakhstan to promote modernising national public procurement policy frameworks in line with new global best practice. The EBRD UNCITRAL Initiative encompasses legal diagnostics, a regional series of policy workshops and country-specific technical cooperation projects supporting reforms in Armenia, the Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia and Tajikistan. The EBRD UNCITRAL Initiative provides policy advice and support in developing new primary and secondary legislation as well as assists with establishing independent public procurement review bodies and introducing electronic public procurement tools. The Government of Ukraine is undertaking an intensive public procurement reform programme, with an objective to create a modern, unified, electronic public procurement system ensuring transparent, fair and non-discriminatory procedures for all participants and efficient spending of public resources. New public procurement law has been adopted in December 2015, Ukraine joined the WTO’s Agreement on Government Procurement in April 2016 and an eProcurement scheme, Prozorro has been introduced as mandatory for all public sector entities in Ukraine on 1 August 2016. With basic procurement methods already available in the electronic format, presently the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine is working on introducing procurement procedures for more complex procurement and online purchasing based on electronic framework agreements and e-catalogues. These terms of reference relate to supporting the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine and Prozorro SOE with developing and piloting electronic framework agreements and e-catalogues for Prozorro, to achieve a seamless online purchasing process from demand aggregation to payment for goods ordered from e-catalogues. The Bank is now seeking to engage a team of consultants (the "Consultant") to assist with implementation of the TC Assignment in Ukraine (the "TC Assignment"). Assignment Description: The objective of the Consultant is to assist the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, the Prozorro SOE or dedicated central purchasing body with developing and piloting electronic framework agreements and e-catalogues for Prozorro. The Consultant will assist with the development and piloting electronic framework agreements and e-catalogues on Prozorro by designing and prototyping elements of online purchasing process from demand aggregation to payment for goods ordered from e-catalogues, in terms of methodology, business process, standard bidding documents and the MVPs as currently required for operation of electronic framework agreements and e-catalogues on the Prozorro system to support: a) development of the e-catalogue for online contracting, ordering and payment, as required for piloting online purchasing process; b) implementation of online contracting and/or payment by integration or development of online solutions available to the local marketplaces; c) preparation of the pilot and piloting of online purchasing process with selected contracting authorities or entit
