EFOR organizes the conference “Anti-fraud Measures in Public Procurement in the EU Single Market – Legal, Institutional and Technical Solutions”

EFOR and Partnership for Social Development will organize the conference Anti-fraud Measures in Public Procurement in the EU Single Market – Legal, Institutional and Technical Solutions, on Friday, 28th March 2014, at Minerva Hotel, 2-4 G-ral. Gheorghe Manu Str., 1st District, Bucharest. The event will be organized at the same time in Croatia (Zagreb) and audio-video communication will be provided.
After the first conference of the project, the partners have published an analysis focused on the vulnerabilities of the public procurement system, including contributions from the relevant stakeholders. The following step is to present a series of institutional and legal recommendations for Romania, starting from the Croatian experience and the EU framework, and then to finalize – taking into consideration the results of the debates at this conference – a public policy document destined to the decision-makers containing the legal, institutional and technical recommendations for the improvement of the Romanian public procurement system.


The event gathers representatives of the relevant institutions and stakeholders from Romania and Croatia in order to debate the Croatian experience and the European provisions and good practices on public procurement. The partners will present a series of legislative and institutional recommendations and will finalize during the video-conference a public policy document that will be sent to all the relevant stakeholders.

The event is part of the project Cross-Country Legal and Institutional Framework for Suppression of Fraud in Public Procurement, supported by European Anti-Fraud Office, through Hercule II Programme (2007-2013), implemented by Partnership for Social Development (Croatia) in cooperation with Expert Forum (Romania). The project aims to build a first truly common market between two Member States (Romania and Croatia) by making available data on procurement via internet and create a ground for the implementation of the future European Directive on Public Procurement.
This event is supported by the European Union Programme Hercule II (2007-2013). This programme is implemented by the European Commission. It was established to promote activities to combat fraud affecting the EU’s financial interests, including cigarette smuggling and counterfeiting.
