HLRM for the Bogotá Metro project, Colombia

In August 2018, the Basel Institute on Governance and OECD signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Colombian President and Mayor of Bogotá to promote collaboration in designing a High Level Report Mechanism (HLRM) for the construction of Bogotá’s first metro line.

Co-financed by central and local governments, the 25 km elevated metro line will transport around 650,000 passengers a day. The total cost of this major five-year infrastructure project is estimated at USD 4.1 billion.

The Transparency Secretariat has been working with the Metro Enterprise, a company set up for this project, and senior Bogotá officials to define and implement the HLRM. The selection process for the Panel of Experts took place in January 2019.
