Public procurement is among those spheres in the management of the public sector in Bulgaria which are characterized by the highest corruption risk.

The report examines the corruption in public procurement and assesses the losses from it. It also focuses on big corruption in public procurement with a view to the fine-tuning of the policy tools. This type of corruption covers all transactions and procedures which fall or should fall within the scope of the public procurement legislation.
