Contracting with the government
The contracting with the government case study measures the efficiency of public procurement. The case study describes a standardized scenario benchmarked by the indicator set and outlines a preliminary description of the methodology. Worldwide, public procurement accounts for 10–25% of GDP on average, and cumulatively governments spend approximately $9.5 trillion on public contracts every year. The efficiency of the process varies considerably, however; currently, there are no global data to benchmark such practices. The contracting with the government database constitutes a one-of-a-kind repository of comparable data on how procurement processes are carried out. The contracting with the government data will be published on the Doing Business website in November 2019. This indicator set, which has been under development for the past three years, will be included in the ease of doing business score in Doing Business 2021.
