Everyone Complains, but Nothing Happens: How to Implement Feedback Loops in Public Contracting That Work

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Many governments have started the journey to publish better data in public contracting but there has been little thought and practice to creating meaningful engagement from citizens and business. Making the public procurement process transparent alone is not enough. Citizens need to have a say throughout. Too often, consultations are too few and too late, complaints go unheard, the open data flow dries up, and multistakeholder groups turn into endless talk shows. We’ll explore how reformers can design, implement and measure better feedback loops that result in real ixes. During the session we will co-create practical recommendations for effective citizen engagement that delivers results.
