Slovakia -Transparency in public procurement -April 16, 2015

Amendment to the law on public procurement - to secure that agreements in public procurement are signed by subjects with clear ownership structure.

The government adopted an amendment to the law on public procurement, which should prevent shell companies from doing business with public authorities. The reason for submitting the draft law is the effort to secure that the agreements in public procurement are signed by subjects with clear ownership structure, revealed to the natural people. The identification of the final beneficiaries is important for increasing transparency, preventing the conflict of interests and fighting corruption in public competitions. However, observers think the law will be toothless.
