OPEN is part of our name and game at the Open Contracting Partnership.
This means, open is at the core of our institution. It is our mission. It is one of our core values. If we want public procurement to be open, we have to be open ourselves. We are trying to model what we ask others to do.
To us this means to be open about our finances, contracts, operations and all information that we create. It means going beyond transparency. It means being honest and accountable about what we do and how we do it. We will publish our contracting information, we will provide timely and detailed data about our grants and operations and we will make all information and resources that are created by us should be freely available.
In this spirit, we would like to ask for your feedback and suggestions on our draft contracting policy here and our draft access to information policy here.
We continuously look for new ways to share information that can help others understand who we are, what we do, and what we spend. If you have better ideas of how and what information we should make available and what our policies should include, let us know.
We are OPEN to your feedback and look forward to your comments by January 8!
