Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Tenders
The mission of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is to promote
policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek
solutions to common problems. We work with governments to understand what drives economic, social
and environmental change. We measure productivity and global flows of trade and investment. We
analyze and compare data to predict future trends. We set international standards on a wide range of
things, from agriculture and tax to the safety of chemicals. We look, too, at issues that directly affect the
lives of ordinary people, like how much they pay in taxes and social security, and how much leisure time
they can take. We compare how different countries’ school systems are readying their young people for
modern life, and how different countries’ pension systems will look after their citizens in old age.
Drawing on facts and real-life experience, we recommend policies designed to make the lives of ordinary
people better. We work with business, through the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the
OECD, and with labor, through the Trade Union Advisory Committee. We have active contacts as well
with other civil society organizations. The common thread of our work is a shared commitment to
market economies backed by democratic institutions and focused on the wellbeing of all citizens. Along
the way, we also set out to make life harder for the terrorists, tax dodgers, crooked businessmen and
others whose actions undermine a fair and open society.
