The objective of the panel is to lay down a logical chain of public procurement system transformation. The panel will gather reformers and CSOs to share experiences on how public procurement can be transformed into an effective instrument for making governments more accountable, transparent, fair and efficient, which tools can be used in this process and how CSOs and governments can collaborate on enhancing public procurement practices. Interested stakeholders will understand what steps were taken in countries that underwent reforms, how public benefits from open, transparent public procurement systems and learn how to use such tools vis-à-vis other public services.
