ProZorro public e-procurement system had the lead in the annual OpenGovernmentAwards 2016 in Paris.
Civic initiatives using the governmental data to reach socially important goals took part in the competition.
ОpenGovernmentAwards acknowledged that ProZorro plays an important role in fighting corruption in Ukraine.
The second prize was awarded to the Indonesian election platform, the third one – to the Honduras initiative enabling better control of the government’s construction and infrastructure expenditures.
It bears reminding that ProZorro is an electronic public procurement system that replaced government`s paper tenders in Ukraine in 2015. Since August 1st, 2016, it became an obligation for all the governmental bodies to use it.
In May this year, ProZorro received the highest prize in the sector of public procurement – the international WorldProcurementAward.
