Public contracting is a trillion-dollar global marketplace run on public money to deliver goods, works, and services to citizens. Yet, with vital details redacted in government contracts, information of what happens with that money is scarce, and access is restricted.
Join us and our open contracting colleagues and friends for a special reception and launch of the new report Mythbusting Confidentiality in Public Procurement.
The report will put evidence-based arguments in your hands to help you counter the inertia, persiflage and vested interests that you will confront as you try to bring more light and insight into the business of government. We’ve talked to over 70 experts from more than 20 countries and found surprisingly little evidence that supports keeping contracting information secret.
