Italy: Autorità Nazionale Anticorruzione (ANAC)

Autorità Nazionale Anticorruzione tracks information in the Italian National Database of Public Contracts.

The Autorità Nazionale Anticorruzione (ANAC) is an independent administrative authority set up in 2012 to combat corruption in Italian public administrative activity. Public administrations are obliged by a 2012 law to release all annual data on public procurement as XML files to ANAC by January 31st of the subsequent year. ANAC publishes these data in OCDS format for all public procurement contracts worth over €40,000. The data are updated monthly on the 2nd of the month.

Data quality

Summary

The dataset has quality issues to take into account, notably:

  • There are around 1.5k releases without an OCID. These are not included in the data downloads.
  • A minority of releases are missing all relevant tags to describe the stages of the contracting process.
  • A minority of releases are missing contract/id and contract/awardID values.
  • A minority of releases have inconsistencies between their award/id and contract/awardID.
  • A minority of releases have incorrectly formatted contracts/amendments/date. These are missing the time portion of the date-time format.
  • A minority of releases have inconsistent dates within the tenderPeriod or contractPeriod objects. These are due to errors in the data provided to ANAC by the contracting authorities.
  • A minority of releases have organization names that are likely erroneous, for example, they are blank or consist entirely of punctuation. As with the inconsistent dates, this is due to errors in the data provided to ANAC by the contracting authorities.
  • Change history is not available, as there is only a single release per procurement process.

Access data

This OCDS dataset is available for download in JSON, Excel or CSV format. You can download the data for contracting processes in a specific year or for all time.

JSON

Each contracting process is represented as one line of JSON text in the .jsonl file.

The .jsonl file is compressed using Gzip. Windows users need 7-Zip, WinRAR or WinZip to decompress the .gz file.

Excel

Each contracting process is represented as one row in the main sheet. Other sheets link to it via the _link_main column.

Excel files can have at most 1,048,576 rows. If a year is missing, it had too many rows.

CSV

Each contracting process is represented as one row in the main.csv file. Other files link to it via the _link_main column.

The .csv files are archived using tar and compressed using Gzip. Windows users need 7-Zip, WinRAR or WinZip to decompress the .tar.gz file.
