Since 2015 this function was attributed to the specialized international organizations, which purchased medicines and medical devices on behalf of the state. From now on, according to the aforementioned Order, procurement within several of these areas will be transferred to the MPU. 

The areas MPU will procure in 2020 are the following:

MPU will arrange all procurement procedures through the Prozorro system and according to the Law of Ukraine “On Public Procurement”. Depending on the procedure it will take from 1 to 2,5 months to finalize all the procedures - from the launch of the tenders to signing of the agreements.
