Transparency and fair competition are the key principles of our business. Therefore, Ukrenergo was one of the first companies in Ukraine to join ProZorro, an instrument of systemic reform of the tender process in public and government e-procurements in Ukraine. Our goal is the most effective implementation of the procurement transparency concept, from procurement planning to final delivery of goods.
Back in April 2015, Ukrenergo joined the-then pilot e-procurement system called ProZorro. In less than a calendar year, we made over one thousand procurements, and that was only the beginning!
Therefore, when the Law of Ukraine On Public Procurements went into effect on 1 April 2016, our company was fully ready to make over-threshold procurements via ProZorro.
Moreover, we have decided to transact most of our sub-threshold procurements via this system, too. And the result wasn’t long in coming. Four times during 2016, Ukrenergo was named the leader in the Victory of the Week nomination, showing the entire Ukraine cost savings ranging from 26% to 83%.
A new platform, ProZorro.Sales, an electronic system for auction sales of non-specialized state-owned assets, was launched in April 2017. We knew about the development of this sales platform, and were waiting for it. So this time, we again were first to join this system: by the end of this year, Ukrenergo expects to sell property worth close to UAH 70 million.
