Procurement at the International Anti-Corruption Conference

Organisation: IACC. Location: Vilnius, Lithuania

The International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) wouldn’t be complete without looking at the road ahead for tackling government’s number one corruption risk – public procurement! 

The first-ever UNCAC resolution dedicated to public procurement was agreed at the 10th Conference of States Parties in Atlanta. Its focus on civic monitoring, private sector integrity, data, digitization, and red flags risk monitoring brings good practice standards up to date, and gives our community a renewed opportunity to push forward from agreements and contracts on paper to modern digitization, data and concrete implementation in practice.

We’ll be in Vilnius, Lithuania to lead the conversation on open contracting. Where can you find us to network and exchange ideas? And which panels will we be watching closely? Join our IACC WhatsApp community and read on!

We will co-host two side events:

When: 12-1:30pm
Where: We’ll grab a table or two in the lunch area.

When: 3:30-5pm

Corruption Measurement: How to Hit a Moving Target? 

When: 5:30-7pm

OCP’s Gavin Hayman will be joining a panel led by UNDP on how we can use data to measure corruption, and by extension, our progress on mitigating and reducing its occurrence and impact on development outcomes. As the highest corruption risk area for governments with a direct impact on citizens – from school buildings that don’t meet safety codes to faulty PPE to subpar sanitation services, inadequate climate mitigation infrastructure and more – procurement data has plenty of insights to offer across the more than 100 risk indicators along procurement cycle from planning to tendering to contract award, management and quality assurance in implementation.

When: 7-9pm
Where: French Ambassador’s Residence 

What: An invitation-only drinks reception co-hosted by the Government of France and Open Contracting Partnership to mark the first-ever UN resolution dedicated to public procurement, and galvanize CSO, multilateral, private sector and government support to see through strong implementation.
