This report looks at how to curb corruption and build a more competitive economy in the Republic of Kazakhstan by assessing four crucial factors: governance, prevention, detection, and prosecution and recovery. In its analysis, it draws on good international practices as well as OECD instruments and tools in 15 policy areas: regulatory governance, competition policy, public financial management, development co-operation, public sector integrity, public procurement, tax administration and transparency, export credits, lobbying, whistleblower protection, business sector integrity, criminalising bribery, civil society, and media. The report provides recommendations for improving Kazakhstan’s laws and policies as well as effectively implementing them in each of these areas.



Ensuring integrity in public procurement in Kazakhstan

As a large share of total public spending and characterised by high levels of interaction between the public and private sectors, public procurement is a major risk area for corruption. This chapter describes public procurement practices in the Republic of Kazakhstan, covering issues such as efficient and clear structures in the public procurement system, transparency and participation of stakeholders, awareness-raising and capacity building to support a culture of integrity that prevents capture and undue influence, controls and risk management, and appeals mechanisms.
