About the project
Public Procurement and Logistics Observatory (PPLO) is a platform for monitoring procurement processes and promoting best practices, initiating a dialogue between relevant stakeholders. It will perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of procurement processes in the Kyrgyz Republic, and share them with government officials and citizens through this portal, and blogs, tweets, newsletters, seminars and training. PPLO will also monitor procurement processes, distribute innovative forms of the public procurement system, and defend the best procurement methods in the Kyrgyz Republic. All this promotes cost savings and improved procurement efficiency.
The vision for institutional strengthen public procurement
The Government of the Kyrgyz Republic ensured the establishment of a public procurement system, and further is making efforts to integrate into global supply chains. Mitigating or overcoming this challenge requires a significant enhance the capacity building of the public procurement system. Existing, various short-term workshops and training courses cannot solve this problem. Therefore, it is necessary to launch educational programs at universities for bachelor, master and doctorate in public procurement.

Together with students and professionals, we set the following tasks: improving public access to information and events in relation to current public procurement of their processes. Track changes in the procurement system and practices of the Kyrgyz Republic and analysis to improve interactions between all participants in the system government procurement.

The role of logistics in my future profession
There are quite a few such professions. But the main thing is that it is not enough to choose the right areas of activity, you have to study hard and master the basics of the profession, striving for real professionalism in your field. And so, I chose and studied different professions for a long time, and ultimately chose the profession - food technologist. This profession is not only in demand but also interesting. But in order to become a good technologist, you need to master a lot of knowledge and skills. A technologist must be versatile, know not only different sciences related to the technology of product production, but must be creative, be able to talk with people, and have leadership qualities, that is to know logistics! If we consider the role of logistics in production, then everyone will unanimously say that its role is enormous for the growth and development of production, because any production process at food processing enterprises begins with the acquisition of raw materials and material resources, which means from logistics. Logistics is the art of managing, planning, and also the ability to optimize production. Logistics in food production can contribute to strengthening the financial independence of an enterprise, improving management methods, and on the other hand, sustainable functioning. Meanwhile, the activities of food enterprises contribute to the solution of both economic and social problems to meet the needs of the population. At the enterprise level, the logistics system can supply and timely supply the production processes with the necessary resources. The implementation of this task is impossible without the activities of the industries of the production infrastructure: material and technical support, procurement, transport, communications, information industry, connects all links of the technological process, becomes an intermediary in the interaction of the manufacturer and the consumer, also provides storage and warehousing of production products. The effect of logistics is manifested in a high level of organization of production, which results in the saving of material and financial resources. These savings are reflected in the form of changes in indicators such as inventory levels, cycle times, capacity utilization rates, etc. In the modern world, people dream of a profession that brings joy, pleasure and decent pay.

Why did I choose to be a buyer?
This profession is very young. The last century in every enterprise there were specialist that implemented procurement activities and were called technical specialists or engineers. They performed various tasks related to calculating supply requirements, finding the necessary material solutions, establishing contacts with suppliers and much more. And as a result, they began to be called Buyers. Significant evolution has taken place over the past decades. As the history of the buying profession shows, before the role of specialists was reduced to a supporting or service function, sometimes they were called back-office. Unfortunately, the buyer's work was often not taken seriously, and this trend can still be traced. But the world does not stand still, and recently, buyers are increasingly required to work at a high strategic level. Today, there is a tendency to introduce procurement directors into the top management of the company, and without them important strategic decisions are not made. So far, this is not a mass phenomenon, but the trend is already encouraging, and I would like to hope that it will continue. This factor is one of the most important in the changing role of procurement in business. Therefore, I want to develop the profession of a buyer and therefore develop myself in it, as well as be one. It should also be noted how important professionalism and understanding of the essence of the purchased goods, works, services are. For example, materials and services need to be procured in different ways, in different ways to evaluate suppliers' proposals, to prepare technical specifications in different ways. This is especially evident when purchasing services. After unsuccessful attempts to purchase services according to the same principle as materials, conversations begin that the buyers do not understand anything, do not know, and destroy all ideas and ideas. As a result of such activities, business and internal customers complain: buyers only interfere, slow down, want to buy the cheapest and everything in the same spirit. The same is heard from suppliers and the market: as soon as buyers intervene, due to ignorance and lack of professionalism, they cannot evaluate ideas, creativity, the adequacy of services, it is just normal to compare services. That is why in such discussions one should insist on separating apples and oranges. It is impossible to classify all buyers as those who interfere with doing business. There are just unprofessional buyers who do not dive into the details and essence of the issues. This is another reason why I want to be in this area and in the future show by example that buyers are not a necessary part of logistics or business.
