Who We are
We make procurement in Europe more accessible.
TheyBuyForYou is a consortium of 10 leading companies, universities, research centres, government departments and local authorities in the UK, Norway, Italy, Spain and Slovenia.
We receive funding from the EU Horizon 2020 programme to make the European procurement market more accessible.
The TheyBuyForYou project started in January 2018 and is completing at the end of December 2020. However, our online tools will be available long after this date – we want to change the European procurement market for the better over the years to come.
To achieve this, our engineers are busy building procurement APIs and user interfaces that are open source and available to everyone. To this day, we have collected more than 112 million records with intelligence on 1.2 million tenders, 1.3 million awards and 100,000 companies. We’re designing bespoke online tools so that everybody can access our data, be it SMEs looking for contract opportunities, local authorities that search for suppliers, or data journalists who care about public accountability.
TheyBuyForYou brings together leading procurement experts and data architects from research centres, governments and companies in five different countries. We’re testing our tools in seven rigorous business cases to make sure we get it right. The Government of Slovenia is already using our tools to detect patterns of fraud in public spending. A local authority in Spain employs TheyBuyForYou technology to make procurement decisions more transparent. And a large credit information service in Italy integrates our tools to offer public authorities and businesses better value.
