Grants to this Grantee

(Substrategy: Build the Conditions for Enduring Conservation)
for the Open Contracting Partnership project
The Open Contracting Partnership engages governments and nongovernmental groups to establish and implement new global standards for transparency and broad participation in public contracting. The new standards will require that governments and companies disclose more contracts, that the information in the contracts is easily accessible and presented in user-friendly formats, and that citizens have opportunities to monitor contract award and execution processes. In addition to encouraging others to create and adopt these new norms, with this grant the Partnership would support country-level application of the principles and would facilitate learning among countries to ensure greater effectiveness in the use of public resources.
