Summary/Abstract: Public procurement (PP) in the Republic of Moldova is currently facing complex problems, which according to the EBRD assessment (2011) determine a low level of compliance with the institutional framework and a medium level of compliance of PP legal framework of the Republic of Moldova with the European standards. In terms of PP, the most pronounced deficiencies are seen in the pre-tendering phase (low level of compliance), the other two phases (tendering and post-tendering) have a medium compliance.Implementation of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement provisions on PP is both a solution and a prerequisite for overcoming the gaps and obstacles of the PP system in the Republic of Moldova.The main goal is the effective, reciprocal and gradual opening of PP markets of the Republic of Moldova and the European Union. The Republic of Moldova will have to make considerable efforts in three directions: (i) the gradual harmonization of the Republic of Moldova PP legislation with the acquis communautaire on PP; (ii) institutional reform in PP area; (iii) establishing an efficient PP system based on regulatory principles applied in the EU.
