A new World Bank initiative aims to focus on mismanagement and corruption in the construction sector, following an OECD report that these factors are typically responsible for 10-30% of a project's cost. The World Bank's announcement follows the successful implementation of a UK Department for International Development (DFID) $7.3m pilot across eight countries. The pilot aimed to increase disclosures of information about the construction process to help stakeholders hold the project agency accountable for value and quality. Disclosures included a project's scope and cost, the agencies and firms involved, the award of contracts, and cost, scope and delivery time during construction. The initiative then aimed to highlight issues so that citizens and oversight agencies could understand them and challenge anomalies. DFID is reported to be very pleased with the implementation of the pilot, although there is no date yet for the roll out of the wider World Bank programme.
