The new electronic system, called MTender, has been introduced in all key central government ministries and 100 subordinated entities. It follows the creation, introduction and adoption of the required technical and legal framework with active support by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Union (EU).

The project started in February 2016 and cost 1.2 million euros, provided by the EU under its EuropeAid programme. The launch of the system is the beginning of a gradual roll-out with the aim to keep the reform momentum going for a radical overhaul of the system, in line with international best practice in governance and public administration
