LOCAL CONTENT

Demonstrate compliance with local commitments

Local content requirements are an essential part of many large-scale projects, but demonstrating compliance can be difficult and even put social license to operate at risk. The Local Content module helps mitigate this risk with a structured, transparent process that lets you manage local employment and capacity-building activities in a single, centralized location.
