Open Contracting and Procurement

In open contracting and procurement, institution transparency and accountability have proven to save money and broaden competition.

Introduction and Overview

Open contracting consists of disclosure and engagement throughout the entire chain of procurement, including planning, tendering, awarding, and implementation.

The financial and human cost of corruption in these processes is significant. According to the UN, corruption reduces the value of a public contract by 10 to 25 percent. And the importance of open contracting goes beyond anti-corruption, as it impacts government efficiency, value for money, and fair competition.

Addressing these challenges through open contracting is quickly becoming a global norm. While work remains, OGP commitments have already produced strong results through a number of innovative reforms.
