We're Open Contracting Innovation Challenge Finalists

Open Contracting Partnership

Open Opps is delighted to be one of six finalists chosen for the Open Contracting Innovation Challenge, a competition run by the Open Contracting Partnership and the Open Data Institute to recognize groundbreaking data-driven ideas for improving public procurement.

Our project, ‘Joined up data’ will unlock new analysis opportunities of procurement data by linking and matching the data of buyers and government entities for our database of over 450 different sources from 76 countries.

Almost all of the Open Contracting Data Standard (OCDS) data published in the world is published as unlinked data. Anyone wishing to use this data, must link the data in order to make it really useful.

By linking the data for others we  can make a real improvement to the open contracting landscape, saving public money and reducing fraud.
