Procurement 50% open


What data is expected?

All tenders and awards of the national/federal government aggregated by office. It does not look into procurement planning or other procurement phases. Open procurement data may enable fairer competition among companies, allow to detect fraud, as well as deliver better services for governments and citizens. Monitoring tenders helps new groups to participate in tenders and to increase government compliance. The Index draws on work from the Open Contracting Partnership. See our methodology for more information.

  • Tenders per government office
  • Awards per government office
  • Tender name
  • Tender description
  • Tender status
  • Award title
  • Award description
  • Value of the award
  • Supplier's name

    Reviewer comments

    The advanced search shows a listing of the notices, you can download the PDF of the notices or look at the details in HTML format. The status can only be implied from the call, and the time the tender is open. Depending on the status, the budget is included but not the amount of the contract.
