What is the public problem that the commitment will address?
Data on the bidding processes and budgetary/financial execution of the City of São Paulo are made available at different portals and systems, such as the Transparency Portal, the Official Gazette of the City of São Paulo, the Budget and Finance System (SOF) and e-Business of the City of São Paulo. However, the information is not always provided in its complete form and/or in open format. In addition, many of the mechanisms that make it possible for citizens to oversee the bidding processes are still unknown to the population.
Overall objective(s) and expected result(s)
By implementing this commitment, we expect to foster greater integration of information related to the bidding processes and budgetary/financial execution. Another objective is to provide citizens with more information on the existing citizen monitoring mechanisms, thus ensuring more effective forms of social control.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem?
Seeking to understand the ways of making the data mentioned above available, it will be possible to point out its possible limitations and possibilities for improvement. In addition, the internal flows of information availability are planned to be improved, aiming at more complete and qualified communication of data, as well as training actions aimed at citizens and civil servants that work with bidding, giving them better follow-up and performance conditions.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
The actions in this commitment aim to improve the transparency mechanisms of the City of São Paulo, allowing greater social control, especially in relation to bidding processes and public procurement. In addition to seeking to improve transparency, the commitment is also relevant to the strengthening of public integrity, as it addresses one of the procedures most popularly associated with embezzlement and misconduct in public administration, increasing responsiveness and accountability by the government.
