Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address?: Government still maintains significant investments in some sectors of the economy despite substantial offloading of Government interest in a large number of commercial activities. Information on the implementation these investments to the public is very scanty. The first and second action plan recognized the need to ensure open and transparent tracking of public investments.; What is the commitment?: The commitment builds on the second action plan’s commitment to initiate action to monitor contract executions to ensure effective service delivery.; How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?: The commitment will provide an opportunity for citizens to have access to information on all contracts entered into by Government through follow ups on the implementation of public investments. This will also help to ensure value for money on all transactions.; Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?: The commitment is relevant to increasing the level of transparency by improving accessibility of information on public contracts.
