Publish procurement data better.
We care about making public procurement more accessible. To achieve this, we need to rethink how we publish procurement data in the first place. We’ve put together a detailed White Paper on best practices in publishing such data, which collects the following ten recommendations:
Provide a minimal set of data in a structured homogeneous format for each contracting process.
Include clear references to all tenderers that participate in contracting processes.
Include clear references to the departments and sub-organisations of the public administration that acts as a tenderer.
Deal appropriately with joint ventures’ data so that information is not “masked” under different organisations' IDs.
All notices and steps associated with the same tender should be published in the same place.
Connect invoices (and results) with the public procurement process to which they belong.
Make all the texts of tenders available in raw format and connected to the contracting processes.
Provide homogeneous visualisations of public contracting data.
Provide visualisations or search paths that answer typical questions that citizens and organisations will have.
Reuse your own public procurement data (e.g., in your transparency portal).
