Information about the project
Open Contracting Data Standard
In 2016 Mexico passed a constitutional reform to create the National Anticorruption System, reforming the Mexican legal framework and making a crucial change to promote concrete policy delivery and active collaboration with civil society through the use of digital technologies and open data. Because of this, Mexico is at the forefront of innovation around open contracting, as one of the first implementations of the Open Contracting Data Standard in mega-infrastructure projects, making open contracting a requirement for all federal procurement, and by committing to lead open contracting globally as a founding member of the Contracting 5 (C5) initiative.
National implementation: Mexico
Ongoing from 31/05/2016 to 30/11/2018
Open Contracting Partnership (OCP), World Bank (WB), National Institute for Transparency, Access to Information and Personal Data Protection (INAI), Ministry of Public Administration (SFP) and the civil society organization Transparencia Mexicana (TM)
