Central public procurement institutions in the Western Balkans

With selected EU country examples

This paper offers a comparative overview of central institutions that develop, regulate and manage the public procurement systems in the Western Balkans, also drawing on examples of good practices established in several EU countries. Its focus is a systematic and detailed discussion of the functions of public procurement offices and agencies, or equivalent institutions.
