Lear’s economists provided technical assistance to the Serbian Republic Commission for Protection of Rights. The expected outcome of the project was the enhancement of the system for protection of rights in public procurement procedures. Lear firstly developed two training programmes, one targeted to the staff and officials of the Serbian Republic Commission for Protection of Rights to strengthen their professional capacity; and one targeted to bidders from the Western Balkans region.
Secondly, Lear fostered the cooperation with other relevant complaint review bodies in the Western Balkans, through the organization of a Regional Conference and the creation of a Network of Institutions. Finally, Lear produced a Report with a comprehensive analysis of the system for protection of rights in Serbia and a Manual on Protection of Bidders Rights in public procurement, consisting in a practical toolkit that provides any tenderers or interested parties with essential information on how to use legal remedies in Serbia.
