Review of civil society monitoring of public procurement in the European Union, 2015

Blomeyer & Sanz is supporting Transparency International with a review of its Integrity Pact tool. Integrity Pacts are agreements between government agencies and economic operators participating in public procurement processes. The agreement commits parties to refrain from paying, offering, soliciting or accepting bribes, and from colluding with competitors during the procurement process. The review will not only be restricted to the Integrity Pact model but also take in account other multi-stakeholder initiatives with an active role for civil society in monitoring public procurement. Special focus will be placed on initiatives in the European Union with a view on identifying how the model can be adapted to various contexts and needs.
