Constituent Mitigations

11.3 Promoting competition: disseminating information about tenders

To help minimise the risk of collusion and diversion of mission resources to malign networks, international missions should promote competition and open the bidding process to as many companies as possible. This, however, might necessitate distribution of information about tenders and contracting opportunities through a variety of means. In addition to the standard announcements online, in the newspapers, through social media, and through notifications to particular companies, it might be helpful to announce tenders through means enabling mission to reach local populations, especially in areas with limited literacy:

  • Through local radio stations
  • Through mobile networks
  • During community meetings
  • With the assistance of community and religious leaders
