Ukraine amends defence procurement policy

17 February 2014

Ukraine's state-owned military industries are to be exempted from the need to competitively tender for government work following a change to the country's procurement law, approved by the Ukrainian government on 12 February.

In a statement issued on 14 February Ukroboronprom, Ukraine's state-owned defence industrial holding group, said that a change to the Law of Ukraine on Public Procurement of Goods, Works, and Services (the overarching legislation shaping public procurement) would mean that a requirement for competitive procurement of defence articles and services no longer applied to its constituent companies.

According to Ukroboronprom Deputy Director General for Civil Programmes Tatiana Hrypko, the change was a result of inefficiencies in the tendering process that had seen projects delayed or cancelled.
