What we do
Open Contracting India is an initiative by CivicDataLab in partnership with Open Contracting Partnership that aims at making public procurements processes in India more efficient, accessible and participatory.
We do this by onboarding governments to international data standards for curating and releasing data, developing platforms to analyse their data for better decision-making, creating case studies and resource material to understand the gaps and benefits of actions.
