Procurement Reform: Corruption risks, Emergencies & Effective Service Delivery
November 1, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
The GI-ACE programme has a number of projects looking at corruption in public procurement, government responses to crises, and how civil society can contribute to the contract monitoring processes that drive transparency. In November, researchers from across GI-ACE project teams shared the stage with Global Integrity’s COVID-19 Transparency and Accountability Project (CTAP) team to discuss corruption risks in vulnerable sectors at the Open Government Partnership Africa/Middle East regional meeting in Marrakech.
Speakers included GI-ACE researcher and Professor at Stellenbosch University, Sope Williams, longtime GI-ACE partners Edwin Muhumuza at Open Contracting Partnership, and Gilbert Sendugwa at the Africa Freedom of Information Centre, as well as Global Integrity CTAP lead, Jorge Florez. The panel was moderated by GI-ACE Communications Lead, Ambika Samarthya-Howard. The conversation highlighted recent research and case studies on locally-led and effective solutions in regards to public procurement and anti-corruption.
