Open it to fix it: How Nigerians are shedding light on public deals with data

A blog by the Open Contracting Partnership describing the implementation of open contracting in Nigeria and the role of social accountability mechanisms.


South Africans have witnessed in recent months of the Covid-19 pandemic how our procurement policies and laws can create opportunity for corrupt people, including government officials, to steal from the state’s purse.

Opinion: How to tackle corruption in health procurement

Covid-19 has created conditions in which corruption in health procurement can flourish. Open contracting would bring this notoriously opaque process into the light.

TI HI’s blog (originally published on Devex) outlines the links between Covid-19 and procurement corruption and highlights the importance of implementing open contracting to counteract these corruption risks.

Case Study: What is the cost of poor procurement practices?

Open Contracting for Health (OC4H) is a DFID-funded project which seeks to improve the transparency and accountability of public procurement in the health sector. By ensuring that the procurement of things like medical supplies and the building of health centres is conducted openly and transparently, it greatly reduces the chance of a situation like that in Aromo repeating.

In Lira County, Uganda, Transparency International Uganda has worked with and trained individuals representing three key stakeholder groups:

  1. Civil society organisations (CSOs) are trained to conduct monitoring of procurement and construction processes.
  2. The private sector to form a Private Sector Association which provide a collective voice for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) on issues of procurement corruption and bidding processes.
  3. Relationships are built with government officials to ensure they are completing contracting processes.
