Hivos and ARTICLE 19 kicked off the Open Contracting Data programme with scoping studies in fifteen countries; namely Bangladesh, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Peru, the Philippines, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda. The research was designed to foster insight into current levels of openness in public contracting, to highlight entry points and challenges for open contracting, and to help identify allies and champions.
The scoping studies indicate the readiness of respective governments and civil society actors to publish and use open contracting data and documents. They point out opportunities and challenges regarding making public contracting more efficient and transparent, and identify needs and capacities of civil society to help translate available contracting data into actionable information.
