Abt Associates is working to increase the transparency and accountability of national and subnational government institutions through macroeconomic and sector-specific policy and regulatory and financial management and through the development of innovative e-government tools and platforms.
As Mexico City’s
new airport — a global megaproject — is built, civil society groups will be tracking its spending and progress online. The use of technology advanced by Abt to increase transparency is part of the USAID Mexico Economic Policy Program
, which connects the public sector and civil society to improve governance, strengthen citizen engagement and create conditions that allow small and medium-sized businesses to flourish. Abt developed an innovative anti-corruption electronic platform in conjunction with national and local government and the private sector.
