OCDS Stakeholder Workshop - Montreal - 31st January 2014
Over the course of 2014 the Open Contracting Partnership (OCP), the World Wide Web Foundation and wide range of stakeholders will be working to develop the first version of a global open data standard for publishing information on public contracts. The Open Contracting Partnership (OCP) belives that increased disclosure and participation in public contracting will make contracting more competitive and fair, will improve contract performance, and will better secure development outcomes. The development of a common standard is vital to ensuring that citizens, civil society, companies, governments and other stakeholders can realise the potential of disclosure of details of the estimated US $9.5 trillion spent every year through government contracts.

We invite you to join us on 31st January 2014 for a stakeholder workshop to:

* Explore the goals and potential for an Open Contracting Data Standard;
* Identify opportunities for involvement in the development of the standard;
* Shape core activities on the 2014 standard development road map;

Apply to take part below. Places will be confirmed by January 27th at the latest.
