Development of a competitive economy

One of the main functions of the State is the procurement of goods, works and services to meet public needs. The efficiency, comprehensiveness, accessibility, stability and transparency of public procurement procedures as well as the development of a competitive economy depend on how rationally and efficiently public funds are used.
