Crown Agents has been supporting international development programmes in Kosovo since 1999, the very beginning of its operations in the region. Since then, we have implemented various projects and training programmes that have addressed Kosovo's developmental needs and supported sustainable growth.
For the last eleven years, our operations have helped deliver procurement, debt management, consultancy, training and many other donor-funded projects, in various sectors, including emergency response assistance, health, revenue enhancement and many more.
We have supported major projects and worked closely with organisations such as,
- UK's Department for International Development (DFID) in assisting emergency response in 2000- 2001, a major project which helped respond effectively to the crisis in Kosovo.
- Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) where we have provided our state-of-the-art customs software to Kosovo Customs and contributed to the rapid increase in the collection of customs related duties
- Post and Telekom of Kosovo to whom we provided procurement consultancy services
- Public Procurement Regulatory Committee and GoKosovo where we trained more than 100 Public Procurement officers in our training centre.
- United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) supporting the Kosovo Police with customised training in public procurement procedures and asset management
Currently we are implementing the following projects:
- Ministry of Finance (MoF), installing the internationally recognised CS-DRMS public debt management system in the MoF.
- EU funded support to Anti-Corruption Institutions in Kosovo helping to raise awareness of causes of corruption.
- EU funded support to Public Procurement Reform which contributes towards setting up a modern and transparent procurement system
In 2010, Crown Agents became a member of the British- Kosovo Chamber of Commerce working to strengthen the UK- Kosovo business relationship.
Crown Agents in Kosovo is represented through our regional office for South-East Europe in Skopje.
