Fund for the City of New York

For The Open Contracting Partnership Program

Overview
The Open Contracting Partnership is a collaboration among government and nongovernment actors aimed at promoting country-level implementation of norms and standards related to disclosure and citizen participation in public procurement and contracting. In this grant period, the partnership will support reform champions to use procurement to foster effective and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and, more broadly, to improve public goods, works, and services. The partnership will also invest in data quality improvement and capacity building for civil society partners to monitor and provide feedback to government and the general public on contract execution. Through the work of the partnership, more than 50 governments have committed to implement open public contracting in the last three years; open contracting has also been endorsed by the G7, G20, and the OECD. Recent estimates show that open contracting reforms have resulted in annual savings of US$2-3 billion. By preventing leakage and enabling the effective use of public resources, open contracting is central to the achievement of the goals of all strategies of the Global Development and Population Program.
