On September 29, 2017, over 30 heads of urban and rural municipalities learned about the Kyrgyz Republic Law “On State Social Procurement” adopted in May 2017, which regulates the mechanism of implementation of SSP and enables local self-governance (LSG) bodies to address social issues and services. Development Policy Institute organized a seminar as a part of the project titled “Strengthening the Capacity of the Ministry of Labor and Social Development to implement state social procurement (SSP)”, with the support of the USAID Collaborative Governance Program. As part of this project, four municipalities will be selected and receive comprehensive consultative support in implementing municipal social procurement.
