We are a foundation or non-profit organization established with the objective of studying and initiating actions that prevent and evidence administrative corruption in public administration in Colombia through the analysis of selection processes by public bidding developed by state entities in Colombia in its execution of public resources. The present proposal of the
PROJECT TO PROPOSE INSTRUMENTS TO REDUCE ADMINISTRATIVE CORRUPTION IN ADMINISTRATIVE PROCUREMENT AT THE TERRITORIAL LEVEL
that gives life to this foundation, arises from the results of the research in the Doctorate program of the Externado de Colombia University entitled THE PRINCIPLE OF PROPORTIONALITY IN THE STATE CONTRACTS, and that at this moment is in the stage of corrections.
Our purpose is to ensure the guarantee of the principles of transparency and morality in hiring, through the legal actions in charge of promoting administrative morality as the case of the Popular Action of administrative morality that is dealt with in article 86 of the Political Constitution , where the rescue and protection of good contractual practices tending to sustainable and effective development is sought through public investments with results materialized efficiently in the country.
Finally, we have the projection to generate public and social awareness in the principles that regulate government procurement and mainly those that govern public bidding by looking at the definition given by the paragraph of Article 30 of Law 80 of 1993, which regulates the procedure of contracting through Bidding as soon as it is a public call designed so that the interested parties can make an offer to the State about a project of their need guaranteeing their right to equality and allowing the State through this bid to bidders or interested parties can choose the most favorable offer to structure solutions to their needs and interests.
In accordance with the above, within the study of cases carried out in the framework of the research that gave rise to this Foundation, it can be seen that the current situation makes it possible to demonstrate the scant guarantees that bidders or interested parties have in most of the bids, for What this project seeks to reduce bad practices through law by going to the administration itself or in its absence to justice.
