to prepare and present a webinar for civil society organisations in Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine)

The aim is to provide 10 – 20 CSO analysts (likely numbers 10-20) with an enhanced understanding of public procurement processes and introduce them to the most effective approaches and methodologies for monitoring public procurement at the national, regional and/or local level, including budget transparency and monitoring of outcomes. These CSO analysts are working on or planning to work on procurement monitoring or evaluation of policy implementation/outcomes.

Partners in Empowerment is a three-year project supported by the EU’s Neighbourhood Civil Society Facility (European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument) Regional actions. The objective of the project is to help Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) engage citizens in actions aiming at improving governance, increasing transparency and reducing corruption in government procurement. The lead partner is PASOS (Policy Association for an Open Society) – a network of independent think-tanks in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia with experience of sub-granting, capacity-building, and international project management. On the grants scheme, PASOS will be working closely with the project country partners and with Partnership for Transparency Fund e.V., a group of experienced development experts providing advice and small grants to local CSOs in various countries.
