Fact Sheet on the second OCDS Mapping Report on the Kenya Tender Portal

Too many governments appear to be unaware of how much, when and with whom they buy and sell. This puts
public contracting by government at risk of corruption. Open contracting can transform public procurement
through better data, analysis and engagement with businesses and civil society. It generally refers to the publication of government contracts, from the awarding process, to the monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of contracts.

Open Contracting ensures that the information disclosed is consistent, accurate and reusable across multiple media through the Open Contracting Data Standard (OCDS). Open Contracting involves:

1. Disclosure of open data and documents about the
planning, procurement, and management of public

2. Engagement with various users of information, leading
to improved accountability; and

3. Redress by government  agencies or contractors by acting on the feedback.
