This module assesses the global availability of structured data on procurement planning, tender, award, and implementation phases. This module was co-developed with the Open Contracting Partnership to provide an improved mapping of the use and availability of procurement data.
During the COVID-19 pandemic alone, many governments have purchased vast quantities of protective equipment and other supplies from the private sector. Better governance of public money through intelligent use of procurement data is directly supportive of the wider public good. This module also seeks to support national public procurement agencies, oversight authorities, anti-corruption agencies, central public administration authorities (ministries of finance in particular), national audit institutions/courts of audit, local public administration authorities, civil society organizations implementing procurement monitoring programs, international financial institutions (EBRD, World Bank, IMF), and transparency and accountability initiatives.
The methodology and data collection processes of this first pilot edition of the Global Data Barometer will be assessed and reviewed for the next edition.
Data analysis does not necessarily represent the views, positions or opinions of the individual partner organizations, and any errors or omissions are the sole responsibility of the Global Data Barometer project.
