DIGIWHIST will compile and evaluate microlevel data using information from individual public procurement tenders and bidding firms’ registry, financial, ownership and management information. This data will be linked to information on public bodies and aggregate asset and income declarations data in order to detect potential conflicts of interest in the system of public procurement, and more specifically, to identify systemic vulnerabilities in the respective legislations and their implementation.
DIGIWHIST will work simultaneously across 35 jurisdictions: 28 EU Member States, the European Commission, as well as Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Serbia, Georgia and Armenia. The consortium partners are University of Cambridge, Hertie School of Governance, Corruption Research Center Budapest, DATLAB, Open Knowledge Foundation Deutschland and Transcrime (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore).
Main outputs will include:
1) Collection of legal and regulatory norms on public procurement, conflict of interest, income and asset disclosure and access to information.
2) Collection of microlevel public procurement data combined with company and other datasets in an open, structured, and standardized format linked to company and public organisation data.
3) Development of indicators measuring transparency, corruption risks and administrative quality.
4) Creation of a series of interactive web portals and mobile apps allowing for accessing data and sending whistleblower reports and freedom of information requests.
5) Development of data collection algorithms regularly updating the database, keeping it relevant beyond the project’s lifetime.
