FILTER BY COUNTRY & ORGANISATION -or- ISSUE AREA:
GHANA

Ghana committed to strengthen necessary whistleblower legislation and to improve and extend the recently established Citizens complaint Centre in Accra to other regions of the country. This is overdue.

Ghana also pledged to ensure that accurate and timely company beneficial ownership information, including in the extractive industry, is available and accessible to the public. This is Ghana’s only new and ambitious commitment, and it is underway.

Two of Ghana’s commitments are neither new nor ambitious, but both are underway. One of these is a commitment to explore further options for improving transparency in public contracting, and continuing to blacklist and debar service providers and contractors who engage in corruption and other related misconduct in public procurement. The other is to work towards making government public procurement ‘open by default’, by implementing the Open Contracting Data Standard for high value contracts and contracts in the oil, gas and mining sectors.
