HLRM for the 4G Roads Project, Colombia

Colombia has led the way in adopting and expanding the concept of the High Level Reporting Mechanism (HLRM). It developed the first HLRM in 2013 to ensure a smooth and fair public tender process for the national 4G roads infrastructure project.

During the 4G roads project, the HLRM was activated about a late modification to technical specifications that cut all but one bidder out of the competition. Working with the bidding companies, experts and government representatives, the HLRM resolved the issue within two weeks in a way that was acceptable to all sides.

To coordinate the HLRM, Colombia’s Secretaría de Transparencia (Transparency Secretariat) works closely with the government agencies in charge of the projects.
