The government’s economic advisory council NERV has proposed a package of measures aimed at curbing corruption. They include introducing electronic auctions, compulsory publication of the respective conditions, contracts and amendments and a duty to name at least five firms that could participate in a tender. The latter is an effort to eradicate the practice of tailoring conditions so as to reduce competition and make it easy for a selected firm to win the given tender.
