National Open Contracting Platform
Mexico has been an Open Contracting Champion since the launching of the Open Contracting Partnership. In 2013 the country officially adopted the Open Contracting Principles, and since then, it has worked through a multi stakeholder initiative officially known as the Open Contracting Alliance MX, to: - Build a multistakeholder mechanism to promote and follow up on the implementation of the Open Contracting Data Standard (OCDS) in Mexico - Adequate the OCDS to the Mexican legal framework and existing regulations - Implement the OCDS in priority infrastructure projects - Develop and adapt regulations to the open contracting regime, and Achieve a full fledged implementation of the OCDS for all federal government contracts. In november 2017, the Mexican Government achieved all these objectives through the launch of the Open Contracting National Platform, through which all federal contracts starting from January 1st, 2017 be are now being published in the OCDS format through a visualization platform that enable citizens a quick search and understanding of how contracts are being implemented in the country, as well as advanced functionalities for developers to use the data standard in third party initiatives to promote greater accountability and public integrity in Mexico.
