Consultant for Open Contracting National Event

Hivos seeks qualified candidates for the position of Consultant for Open Contracting National Event.



Citizen Engagement in Open Contracting Programme is a Strategic Partnership programme funded by Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) with the aim to improve public procurement through making contracting process more open and transparent.

The programme expects key institutional changes as follows: 1) Government articulates clear policies mandating proactive disclosure of documents and data related to the planning, procurement, and implementation of public contracts; and information is published in understandable, open, reusable formats; 2) Government consults non-state actors in the planning of public contracts; invites non- state actors to observe and give feedback on public procurement; and acts upon third party monitoring reports of contract performance. 3) Civil Society, Media, and Private Sector organizations have the capacity to become effective infomediaries and understand and analyze open contracting information and data to give credible feedback to government and oversight authorities without fear of reprisals. And, 4) Government (Oversight Authorities) is acting upon public feedback to hold decision makers and contractors to account for any irregularities.
