  • What is this Hub?

    Welcome to the Open Contracting for Health (OC4H) project's online Open Contracting hub developed with the Transparency International Health Initiative (TI-HI). To read more about us, click here.

    This resource is intended to do three things: 

    1. Provide an e-learning programme tailored to your needs.
    2. Enable cross-country discussion on implementation of Open Contracting and; 
    3. Host downloadable tools for Open Contracting

    Open Contracting is the process of openly publishing contracts to get the best value for money and most importantly, improved service delivery. With advances in technology, this can be done online in order to encourage all competition. 

    Examples of Open Contracting systems are Prozorro in Ukraine. Launched in 2016, as of February 2019, it is estimated to have saved as much as $2.9 Billion dollars and reduced corruption in procurement by 25%.
