Procurement and contract transparency can improve “Value for Money.” But, it’s not always such a simple thing to do – as we heard earlier today from Colombia and Liberia (see below). Legal reform is required. Integration among information systems. Enabling (and training) legislators, vendors and civil society. And, overcoming the digital divide. Traditional media is often required as a substitute for “electronic Government Procurement” (eGP) systems.
Transparency presents culture challenges for public servants. Performance in contracts is often difficult to measure.
