MAPS II falls within the international requirements to establishing a modern and sound public procurement system in Lebanon. This international methodology, developed by the OECD, aims at identifying the strengths, weaknesses and gaps of the system, and providing recommendations to better priorities reform actions.
A National Steering Committee composed of 18 representatives from 15 government institutions, is facilitating access to information, providing input and reviewing the findings. A stakeholders’ group, representing +institutions from the public sector, private sector and civil society has been consulted throughout the process. Two international experts, mobilized by the partner organizations, are facilitating the evaluation process and ensuring its alignment with the methodology.
