Open Contracting Partnership

The Open Contracting Partnership emerged from an enthusiastic community of policy experts, leaders and campaigners who believe that better open data and more community engagement can transform public projects, goods and services. Their vision, structure, and approach are drawn from a collaborative process that included hundreds of stakeholders across government, business, and civil society. Where it all started. October 2012 at the first global open contracting meeting in Johannesburg, South Africa. They kicked off the Open Contracting Partnership at a design meeting in 2012, forming an alliance to foster collaboration, innovation and collective action. The World Bank Group served as their host until the end of 2014. At the first global open contracting meeting in Johannesburg, South Africa, over 150 global and local participants co-created a work plan and a set of global principles that framed our common understanding of open contracting. This work led to a year-long process resulting in the Open Contracting Data Standard in 2014, a global non-proprietary standard structured to reflect the complete contracting cycle. The standard enables users and partners around the world to publish shareable, reusable, machine readable data, to join that data with their own information, and to build tools to analyze or share that data.
