Civic Engagement in Procurement: A Review of Eight International Case Studies PDF Print E-mail

Procurement monitoring is a relatively new fi eld for civic engagement. This paper is a collection of eight selected cases studies which aim to provide examples of practices that have emerged globally in recent years. We hope that the paper will stimulate new thinking on the range of existing options for the establishment of effective partnerships between state and nonstate actors. The objective is not to offer ‘blueprints’ or ready-made solutions to the challenge of civic monitoring, but rather to highlight some of the broader complexities underpinning the successful development of new approaches.

The cases have been drawn from Latin America,South Africa and East Asia, and have been developed based on reviews of secondary material. Where possible, case  studies have been reviewed and fi nalized in collaboration with people directly involved in the process. The cases were selected with the aim of highlighting the diverse forms of civic engagement across different sectors and levels of government. The different types of civic engagement mechanisms include: autonomous research and monitoring, proactive disclosure of information for public access, statecivic partnerships in the implementation of public expenditure decisions, and engagement of civic actors to support the process of reform.

The cases studies are designed to explore how different mechanisms of civic engagement are forged within specifi c social and political contexts, and, more importantly, how the nature of such engagement changes over time. In particular, the studies focus on understanding the driving forces behind the process as it evolved, the impact of the intervention, and the potential for replication at greater scale.
