The Open Contracting Partnership is a silo-busting collaboration between government, business, civil society and technologists to open up the documents and data behind government contracting and deal-making. We work across sectors and along the whole process of government contracting to use the power of open data and improved oversight to save governments money and time, deliver better goods, services and works to citizens, deter corruption and create a better business environment.
Open Contracting for Infrastructure (OC4I)
Open Contracting for Infrastructure (OC4I) is our ambitious strategy for delivering transformational change to infrastructure procurement and delivery. Infrastructure underpins every aspect of human life. From transport systems to power-generation facilities and water and sanitation networks, infrastructure enables society to function and economies to thrive. An estimated $97.5 trillion in infrastructure investment is needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals by 2040. However, despite being one of the largest economic sectors in the world, investments are likely to fall short by as much as $18 trillion. There is also a significant 30% efficiency gap between the money that is spent and the coverage and quality of the resulting infrastructure. This means that vital, life-changing infrastructure and related services are not being delivered to citizens
OC4I is all about driving improvements so that the infrastructure delivered is 10X better, faster, and stronger in meeting the needs of people across the world. To do this, we need innovations that are replicable and can scale rapidly.
