The Role of the organisation:

  • Preparing/developing the institutional capacity of the TI chapters in order to improve their understanding on public procurement. Beside the exchange of experience regarding similar trainings implemented by TI – Secretariat and TI – Romania during former projects financed by OLAF, one workshop will be held in Bruxelles in order to prepare the implementation of the training sessions.
  • Caring out the training sessions. Session trainings in all the states involved are provided within the project, TI – Romania organising a number of 3 such trainings. They will be initiated after a needs assessment analysis, followed by adapting the global training curricula and the toolkit addressed to the vulnerabilities of the public procurement process to the national context. Also, the courses are conceived so that a transnational dimension will be given to training, with trainers from other Member States of the EU taking part.
