Lessons from Reformers

This case study was originally posted in the OGP Global Report.

After joining OGP in 2016, the government of Nigeria made a commitment in its first OGP action plan (2017–2019) to adopt the OCDS in its public procurement systems. The government decided to prioritize reforms in key ministries, including Power, Transportation, Works, Agriculture, Health, Education, Niger Delta, Environment, and Solid Minerals. Importantly, the government committed not only to disclose information in OCDS format, but also to establish a multistakeholder procurement council and train civil society organizations, the private sector, and the media on the use of the new platform as a way of improving citizen engagement in the procurement process.
