Integrity Pacts in Argentina – Country Overview

Poder Cidudadano – TI’s chapter in Argentina – was one of the first TI chapters to promote the use of Integrity Pacts to oversee public procurement in Latin America in the late 1990s. Various contracting agencies – at the national, regional, and city levels – piloted IPs from around 1997 – 2003.

The Argentine government most recently endorsed Integrity Pacts as a standard part of public contracting as part of comprehensive integrity and transparency reforms in 2017. As per decree, IP should become a standard declaration for tenders for certain public contracts. No information on how the IPs have been used in this context since this time is available.
