A. Endorse and implement the Open Contracting Global Principles [1], which have been endorsed by the governments of the United Kingdom and Scotland [2].

B. Participate in the Construction Sector Transparency Initiative (CoST) [3] program, which 14 countries have joined including the United Kingdom [4].
