In line with Lebanese Government commitments to public procurement reform, the Ministry of Finance conducted in 2019-2020 the Methodology for Assessing Procurement Systems (MAPS II), with the support of the World Bank and the Agence Française de Développment. The President of the Institut des Finances Basil Fuleihan, Ms. Lamia Moubayed Bissat, was mandated by the Lebanese Minister of Finance, as National Focal Point.
The MAPS assessment report provided, for the first time in Lebanon, evidence on the level of performance of the procurement system. Only 5% of the 210 qualitative and quantitative indicators have fully met the international standards, giving a strong signal of the importance of an informed policy process and the urgency to having a strategic vision for procurement reform in the country.
MAPS falls within the international requirements for a modern and sound public procurement system in Lebanon. Developed by the OECD, the methodology aims at identifying the strengths, weaknesses and gaps of the system, and providing recommendations to better priorities reform actions.
In Lebanon, the assessment was conducted through a consultative and participatory process. A National Steering Committee composed of 18 representatives from 15 government institutions, facilitated access to information and reviewed the findings. A stakeholders’ group, representing +100 institutions from the public sector, private sector and civil society was consulted. Two international experts, mobilized by partner organizations, facilitated the process and ensured its alignment with the methodology. The assessment report was reviewed for compliance by MAPS international Technical Advisory Group (TAG).
