The global response to COVID-19 has put procurement in the spotlight. Masks, school lunches, potholes: that’s where the government put taxpayer’s money to work. Globally, US $13 trillion is spent on contracts with private companies.
This session explores tactics and tools to investigate public procurement and provide tips for monitoring red flags and using public data provided by the government. Georg Neumann from the Open Contracting Partnership looks into specific case studies and share some of the most outrageous stories.
