G20 Smart Cities Open Contracting Model Policy

This Model Policy has been developed as part of the G20 Global Smart Cities Alliance. Through the Alliance, global experts from government, private-sector partners and civil society, are compiling and analyzing policies from around the world to identify model policies for successful, ethical smart cities.

This Open Contracting Model Policy aims to provide cities with the ideas, methodologies, and tools needed to explore and embed open contracting in public procurement. Building on best practice from around the world, this Model Policy could be implemented as a policy in its entirety, used by a city to shape a full and comprehensive approach to public procurement, or as a resource to phase-in open contracting over time. Some aspects of this Model Policy may also align with local, regional, or national legislation.
