1. All countries should permit independent experts selected by civil society organizations to participate in all stages of government procurements above a certain threshold (which could differ from country to country based on the level of development), including procurement funded by international financial institutions such as the World Bank, and to publish their findings no later than ten working days after the award of the contract.
2. Governments should be responsive to civil society requests for information and resources necessary to perform meaningful oversight and should take corrective action on findings
The Government of Mexico has permitted “social witnesses,” appointed by civil society, to participate in procurement proceedings since 2004. Since 2009, participation of a Social Witness is mandatory in procurements valued at more than about US$ 23 million. The Social Witness is required to issue an alert if he or she detects any alleged irregularities in the course of the procurement. At the conclusion of the procurement proceedings, the Social Witness issues a publicly available statement including observations and, as appropriate, recommendations. The statement is posted on the website of the procuring entity, as well as on the Mexican central procurement website and in the file of the tender. In the Philippines, civil society is invited to participate in procurements and has done so in many cases. In addition, the Philippines procurement law allows any citizen to file complaints with the local Ombudsman in case irregularities are detected in a specific public procurement.
