Heute geht das Vergabeportal opentender.eu, mit Datensätzen aus 32 Ländern und der Europäischen Kommission, online. Opentender.eu bietet die Möglichkeit Vergabedaten strukturiert einzusehen und zu visualisieren. Risikoindikatoren informieren zusätzlich über die Effizienz und Transparenz von Ausschreibungen.

Im Rahmen der DIGIWHIST Abschlusskonferenz „Big data with local impact: Using open data to improve public procurement“ wird das Portal erstmalig der Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt. Die Konferenz kann per Live-Stream verfolgt werden.
