Over the last six months we've been priveledged to be part of Data Pitch: 'an open innovation programme bringing together corporate and public-sector organisations that have data with startups and SMEs that work with data'.
The problem we tackled
Data on public procurement is disorganised, spread across multiple portals and not connected to identifiers, making it hard to analyse trends in public sector markets and find opportunities.
The situation is particularly bad in Europe where data is spread over 13,000 different portals.
The solution we proposed
A single source of public procurement data - contracts, tenders and spend where available.
Creative clear and useable visualisations to help people understand public sector markets.
What we achieved
Dashboard live with new customers
New API for tenders launched
Partnered with Sciamlab in Italy to support OCDS translation to Italian
Italian tender data live and searchable on OpenOpps.com
Data gathering, linking and augmentation
Dashboard redesigned in response to feedback and market review
