A commitment to take steps to reflect the principles of open contracting is ongoing. The Bank provides specific support for implementation of open contracting principles in five of the 19 countries who committed to open contracting at the Summit.

Pledges to support efforts to prevent corrupt bidders from winning state contracts and to lead work in establishing mechanisms for sharing information across countries concerning debarment, are both underway. The platform for the Administrative Sanctions Against Corruption system is being developed. The World Bank’s commitment to provide technical assistance and capacity building to implement standards and reporting requirements on beneficial ownership, including commitments made by G20 countries is ongoing.
