Open Contracting to Improve Procurement in Italy
Italy has been championing transparency in the public spending agenda on an international level, including the ambitious commitments within G20 and G7, accelerating the digitization, transparency and accountability of public procurement. In 2022, Italy will co-chair the Open Government Partnership, assuming leadership for global open government efforts.
Italy has already been making solid progress on public procurement reforms and open contracting. The European Commission recently awarded the Italian government’s contract register for improving governance through digitization. The Italian Anti-Corruption Authority (ANAC) is currently implementing the OCDS to collect and publish all available contracting information as user-friendly open data.
ANAC together with the OCP are inviting you to a workshop on 6 December with the following objectives:
(1) To present ANAC’s new data offerings to Italian stakeholders and propel a discussion among key potential OCDS users and gather their expectations towards further publication improvements;
(2) Share global examples of best practice and what has worked elsewhere to inspire ANAC and civil society in Italy and;
(3) Gather Italian nongovernmental community feedback and requirements towards further improving data publication offerings by the Government.
We look forward to having you join us for this conversation.
