Government, Public Sector & Non-for-Profit
Government sector is an apparatus of the state, structures that provides people with services, plays a role of the supervisor of compliance with laws, etc. Non-for-profit organisations are various funds, non-governmental and public organisations, movements, clubs, etc.
Public procurement is the main tool of state institutions and sometimes of private companies for buying services and goods. Because of its scope, public procurement has a major impact on economy. Various local and international business organisations participate in public procurement and compete for state and private orders. One of the main problems in this area is how to ensure transparency of public procurement, so that a product or a service of the highest quality could be purchased by at the lowest price without violating the laws.
The Baltic States still lag behind Western countries in the number of NGOs and other public organisations. Various programs for promotion, development and support to NGOs are under way. Organisations are created on the initiative of the citizens who understand that this is the way to defend their rights and represent their interests. However, a lot remains to be acomplished in this area in order for non-for-profit organisations to become real tools of the civil society.
