Brief history of National Center of Public Policy Research NGO

Our NGO was established in 2017. The total portfolio of NGO as of now is about USD $ 130000, and includes project with funding from various donors (OSF-Armenia, US Embassy, Institute for development of freedom of information (IDFI Georgia)). In addition, we participate in developing CEPA action plans (PFM part) initiated by OSF. The main focus of NGO is monitoring of PFM and especially public procurement at a country and regional level. Moreover, we are analyzing SME trends and especially their participation in public procurement processes. Our NGO is promoting transparency and accountability initiatives in PFM area. Furthermore, we did education expenditure review underlying also KPIs that are used in education planning. In this sense we are strongly working with Ministry of Education. In addition, we are presenting main social-economic trends in mass media. We had an agreement with web portal who will do the advocacy of materials and reports and will be responsible for selection of active groups and journalists for training and also will provide a separate section for reports in order to have future sustainability and publicity of the project. (attached please find the support letter). During these years we did a lot of training (training for active groups, NGOs and journalists in all Armenian marzes) and published a guidebook for investigative journalists how to gather and analyse the public procurement data.
