Your learning starts here

At Open Contracting Partnership, we help our partners think differently about procurement to drive open, impactful and sustainable reforms. We help our partners use an open government and an open data approach to transform public procurement. 

This section is intended to ground you on the open data part of that journey. We will take you through the foundations of why data matters, how standards can help, and what you can do with data. The journey is broken down into three sections on understanding, publishing and using open data. 

Data is a means to an end, not an end in itself. You can also learn about the other dimensions of open contracting, including planning reforms, advocating for change and involving stakeholders.

And, if you want more convincing on the impacts and effectiveness of open contracting approaches, you can read our impact stories.
