Open Contracting: Lessons from Mexico City

## Workshop __Group__: 1 - Public and economic sector transparency __Track__: 4 - Transparency, accountability and fight against corruption __Type__: Roundtable __Language__: en __Committee Rating__: 5.00 / 5 (1 votes) __Public Rating__: 5.00 / 5 (1 votes) ### Abstract Mexico City, as a local actor, has now implemented the OCDS for all five stages of the procurement process in the Secretary of Finance and is expanding this project to other City agencies. This action has made CDMX the first in the world to implement all phases of the OCDS. It has also developed a visualization portal through which all stakeholders, sophisticated or new to procurement, can understand the City’s contracts. To add to the portal’s functionality, the City developed an API to allow the public to download and manipulate the data as it sees fit. Furthermore, the project is open source so others can replicate it using its code. Mexico City’s Contratos Abiertos portal has set a high standard for what can be achieved using existing human resources, and can provide lessons on forming alliances with outside organizations to develop user-friendly services. In so doing, the project demonstrates that local governments can begin building momentum behind groundbreaking ideas with energy and the right partnerships.
