General problem challenge addressed by the commitment:
The linkage between budget and procurement data through a delivery chain to enhance public service delivery remains a challenge. In addition, Ministries, Departments and Agencies do not proactively disclose procurement information in a uniform format that is accessible to all citizens. Public participation in the procurement process is quite minimal.
Main Objective:
To improve accountability and transparency of the procurement processes through the implementation of open contracting and public participation in the open contracting process.
Brief description of commitment:
Kaduna State Government commits to progressive implementation of open contracting and the adoption of the open contracting data standards to enhance transparency, accountability and citizen engagement in public procurement and fiscal transparency. Priority will be given to at least 5 MDAs at the heart of government development priority (Works, Transportation, & Housing, Agriculture, Health, Education, and Environmental & Natural Resources)
Specific OOP challenge addressed by commitment:
Citizens are not carried along in the public contracting process with many believing it is only friends and allies of govern-ment that are being awarded contracts_ Knowledge of civic rights and responsibilities to effectively engage the contracting process and track its implementation is quite limited thus some of the contracts are poorly done. Implementation of open contracting will help to improve public service integrity, trust and ensure that a greater amount of public resources are managed more effectively and efficiently to derive value for money.
Rationale for commitment:
Transparency, accountability, competition and citizens engagement
Expected Outcome/impact:
Achievement of better value for money in public contract delivery and reduction of corruption and fraud in public procurement processes. ii. Provide level playing ground and competitiveness. ]mproved perception of citizens in public contracting process
