Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ The Cabinet at its meeting on December 18 made a decision to re-establish the Public Procurement Agency. 

According to a government resolution issued on July 27, 2016, the Public Procurement Agency was dissolved into the Government Agency for Policy Coordination on State Property. However, the Cabinet concluded that the action caused a disruption in the operation of the independent specialized body in charge of major national and regional procurements.

When ministries, government agencies, and other state organizations were held responsible for procurements in addition to their key tasks, it led to delays in investments and construction activities, increased costs, and wasted time.
