The Toolbox is an on-line resource that captures emerging good practice to enhance corruption prevention and good management in public procurement in OECD and non-OECD countries. The tools contained in this website have been compiled from practices which have been successfully tested in a number of countries.

The tools are classified according to their use in the procurement cycle and also by theme according to the pillars underlying the OECD Recommendation.





Why a Toolbox?

This Toolbox supports governments to implement the OECD Principles for Enhancing Integrity in Public Procurement (2008).  These Principles apply to the entire procurement cycle: from needs assessment, to contract award and final payment. They emphasise transparency, good management, prevention of misconduct and accountability.

Who should use it?

The toolbox is intended to be of equal value for policy makers and procurement practitioners at both national and sub-national levels of government.

How do I navigate?
