Procurement 40% open

Ethiopia

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

How open is the data?

Publicly available Yes
Openly licenced No The data available on the Government website are freely available for re-use but the copyright statement reads us - "Copyright © 2015, The Federal Public Procurement & Property Administration Agency. All Rights Reserved."
Up-to-date No There are a few Tender Announcement entries which are up-to-date. Based on my personal knowledge of the volume of government tenders, however, the timely entries are negligible. Other entries such as award announcements and contracts are even obsolete.
In an open and machine-readable format Other The data are visible on the website which cannot be downloaded. I would rather say date are in HTML format.

In terms of organization coverage more emphasis is given only to Ministry of Education.
