Partnership for Transparency - PTF

Partnership for Transparency - PTF PTF is an international non-government organization that advances innovative citizen-led approaches to improve governance, increase transparency, promote the rule of law and reduce corruption in developing and emerging countries.

Partnership for Transparency works to advance innovative citizen-led approaches to improve governance, increase transparency, promote the rule of law and reduce corruption in developing and emerging countries. PTF mobilizes expertise and resources, providing technical assistance to civil society organizations (CSOs) that engage citizens in actions to improve governance, increase transparency and reduce corruption in developing countries. Our goal is to pilot and scale-up innovative approaches and tools that reduce corruption and improve governance. Throughout the project cycle we seek to draw lessons from these experiences and share the resulting knowledge widely to advance a culture of transparency around the world.

Mission: Supporting citizen action for better governance

PTF's partners on the ground help hold governments accountable and ensure relief reaches those who need it most.

Global health crisis has forced Businesses to look deeply into their procurement processes, risk management related to Supply Chain and resource generating. There has been a lot of firefighting going on in the process of private procurement and the business survival to find their place back into the economy and keeping their business run as smoothly as possible. A solution is required to respond to the economic risks faced by workers and suppliers at all levels and to improve procurement processes post COVID. New digital technologies are emerging transforming businesses to improve their supply chain and their ability to resist such crisis shock.

This webinar aims to highlight issues related to the private procurement in businesses and to share insights about the risks, challenges in the current context as well as the solutions and best practices that can be adopted in the private procurement and supply chain management.

Join PTF India along with a number of partners on Tuesday, August 04, 2020 at 11:30 hrs IST and participate in the discussions. The event will last long for 90 minutes and will be available in English. To know more about the webinar please click below-

Fixing the patchy collaboration between government and civil society

"Ensuring that governments and civil society can successfully scale their collaboration for the common good of the citizens they serve, demands that we learn from collaborative efforts in order to scale them up. This is a vital role that donor governments, foundations and international financial institutions, such as the World Bank, can now play."
