Participation in Public Procurement

Session overview

Join the Oxford POGO Club online at 4pm, Tuesday 30 May (rescheduled from 28th March).

How do you measure and increase the inclusiveness of contracting policies in a country? In this session, we will explore strategies to increase the participation of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), women businesses, and minority groups in public procurement. This was the focus of a 2022 resource from the Open Contracting Partnership (OCP), Inclusive and effective public procurement: Findings and lessons from research in 12 countries. OCP's Camila Salazar will co-chair this session with short presentations from some of the researchers and discussion by an expert panel.

The Procurement of Government Outcomes (POGO) Club is a knowledge sharing initiative that is open to anyone interested in capacity building in public procurement and in collaboration to improve social outcomes. We host monthly calls, maintain a mailing list, and share other resources. Participants come from many different disciplines, sectors, and countries. Our chair is Anne Davies, Professor of Law and Public Policy.
