Procurement 30% open

Botswana

What data is expected?

All tenders and awards of the national/federal government aggregated by office. Do not consider 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. The Index draws on work from the Open Contracting Partnership.

  • Tender name & description
  • Tender status
  • Award announcement
  • Value of the award
  • Supplier's name
  • Available per national government office
  • None of the above

Suggested changes to submission include the link to the PPADB. Going to the Wayback machine, it seems like the information was available for the tenders before, which means it's likely just not been updated in a while. Also suggested changing to No in the License, since it's only a copyright notice what was provided.
