2021 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the importance of robust public sector systems into sharp focus. Emergencies bring new risks and threats to managing large scale procurements for developed and developing countries alike. Public and private sectors, along with civil society actors all have a role to play in this. Changing behaviours and shifting norms depends on not just good quality data but also taking advantage of new technologies, generating the tools to use that data and engage citizens to minimise opportunities for corruption. Behavioural science has an important role to play within this arena as well as data standards and the GovTech tool-box of innovative public policies. This event brings together experts from government modernisation, digitalisation, public procurement and anti-corruption to ensure that open government tools and innovative methodologies support policy makers to improve procurement. The panel will comprise of experts cross-cutting these themes, emphasising the contribution that behavioural scientists can make to the A-C/Integrity agenda (https://globalanticorruptionblog.com/2019/01/25/where-is-the-behavioral-insights-revolution-in-anticorruption/#more-12648)
