Procurement 50% open

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

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

    findable_steps By searching the keywords " tender st vincent grenadine" I was connected to the St Vincent and the European Development Fund, provides assistance to Ministries and Project Implementation Units (PIUs) in the management of and implementation of projects and programmes. However i had spent a great deal of time attempting to source Central Supplies Tenders Board (CSTB) in an attempt to find more recent catalog of tenders and awards The information was not easily .
    Collected by government Yes
    usability 1 On the Ministry of Finance page the tender notices link connected to a World bank. I am under the assumption that they had out sourced there tender notices through the World bank for a period. The second website in collaboration with the European Union host open and closed tenders however the information appears to be fairly out dated. This disjointed collection of data can prove to be challenging in the collection, and analysis of the data
    collector_name Central Supplies Tenders Board (CSTB) The Central Supplies Tenders Board (CSTB) manages the procurement system of the central government.
