The Slovak Spectator reports that Parliament has elected a lawyer as the new head of the Public Procurement Office (ÚVO). He replaced the current head on September 14. The new head has not worked for the office before, but the PM believes this will bring a ‘sideways’ look at the office. The new head prioritises the professionalisation of the public procurement office, the predictability of its actions and decisions, and the education of a new generation of experts in public procurement. He also wishes to create a professional organisation for public procurement, similar to the legal profession. Will public procurement professionals require a licence to operate – we wonder? That’s a subject for a whole other discussion.
