Procuring entities (PEs) in Ethiopia and Tanzania have recently benefited from a programme of capacity building support, aimed at helping them to disclose information as part of their CoST national programmes. Consultants worked with PE staff to gather and analyse information and assess the resources, policies and systems that will be required to mainstream information disclosure systems. Six PEs were involved in the programme representing roads, water, health and education sectors.
The programme was funded by a grant from Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Reports on the work will be published on the CoST website shortly.
