TBFY Online Workshop — Data governance in public procurement: from principles to practice

November 25, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

TheyBuyForYou Workshop: Data Governance in Public Procurement: from Principles to Practice

About this Event

Access to high quality procurement data is in many ways essential for the economy. Access to data can enable analytics and insight that helps small companies to compete in a market dominated by large enterprises, while ensuring that public procurers make informed decisions.

Much progress in opening up procurement data has been made, but numerous challenges remain. The EU-funded innovation action TheyBuyForYou has gathered procurement data from all over Europe, connected the data with reconciled company information and curated the linked data set to make it accessible for everyone.

At this workshop we will present and discuss our latest report “White paper on the publication and governance of open procurement data” with stakeholders in industry, policy-making and public procurers.
