Riga Tram Integrity Pact

TI-Latvia Delna entered into a Integrity Pact with the Riga Transport Authority to monitor the tender and contract implementation of various aspects of a public works project to extend the Riga tram system. Delna discovered, reported on, alerted the authorities, and made recommendations regarding numerous irregularities in the tender and contract process from the outset of its monitoring activities.

In August 2019, the Central Finance and Contracting Agency of the Republic of Latvia terminated the agreement with the Riga Transport Authority withdrawing funding and cancelling the Riga tram extension project due to suspicions of fraudulent activity and high corruption risks in the project.

This IP is part of the “Integrity Pacts Programme – Safeguarding EU Funds” project funded by the European Commission.
