Procurement 60% open

South Africa

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

Two sections of the platform to visualize the contract data. Changed the license information since the notice here http://www.etenders.gov.za/content/about-etenderpublication only gives information that the site is free to use, but nothing about the content and the reuse of the data.
