TI Slovakia and Fair-Play Alliance Launch Open Contracts Portal

Transparency International’s national chapter in Slovakia and the civil society organization Fair-Play Alliance have launched on Monday the portal Open Contracts, which brings together all available information on public contracts on one single platform accessible to citizens.

According to TI Slovakia, the organization has pressured the government to publish data on state contracts, and although public agencies have been improving transparency about public spending, the information is scattered across thousands of individual websites. The Open Contracts portal aims at addressing that problem by aggregating the data and allowing users to find the information they are looking for more easily.

More information is available on TI Slovakia’s website (in Slovak only). The Open Contracts website is also available in Slovak only, but a translated version can be accessed here.
