Procurement 70% open


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

How open is the data?

Some of the data is outdated, you can get the 2016 data a bit more updated through an API but you have to do different queries for different parts of the data. The Licence for the data in the data portal is CC, for the API the data is ODbL. Thanks to Augusto Herrmann for comments on the forum for this submission.
