The OpenTender platform – part of the DIGIWHIST project – collects, transforms and publishes contracting data from 33 jurisdictions: 28 European Union (EU) member states, Norway, the EU Institutions, Iceland, Switzerland, and Georgia. Most of the data come from Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) and from national procurement portals.
The data from TED covers contracts whose monetary values exceed the thresholds set by EU directives. The thresholds are adjusted for inflation every 2 years. This data is supplemented by data from the national procurement portal, to cover contracts whose monetary values are below those thresholds.
