Annual Report 2017: Serving up transparency and change in public contracting
By Open Contracting Partnership
Our Annual Report 2017. Doubling down on scale and impact.
Our focus for 2017 was to convert the evident wave of demand for open contracting into credible actions and first steps on this road. We adjusted our approach to providing more catalytic support to reformers, particularly during the early stages of an agency’s adoption of open contracting, when reforms are especially vulnerable as the system starts pushing back. We sought out and supported mid-level practitioners responsible for implementation, conducted assessments, surfaced user needs, offered tools and guidance, and connected allies both inside and outside of government.
