Procurement 33% 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

    The last update of data is from September 2016, you can see the notices in PDF or DOC but not get more information. Changed B5 to No, since download has to be done one by one.
