Investigating Covid Contracts
The COVID-19 response has put a spotlight on health sector spending, be it protective equipment for front-line staff, vaccines, or medicines. Globally, US $13 trillion is spent on contracts with private companies each year and spending on health is one of the largest areas – and also one of the most opaque.
This free session explores tactics and tools to investigate public procurement and provides tips for identifying red flags and monitoring public data provided by the government. Georg Neumann from the Open Contracting Partnership will look at case studies from the health sector, as well as help you explore the data published from 9 countries on their platform at open-contracting.health.
