Hungary urged to create public procurement database

History

The Hungarian office of anti-corruption NGO Transparency International (TI) has urged the government to create searchable databases of public procurements that describe contracts, show their value, and reveal the parties with whom they were signed.

TI gave Hungary bad marks for failing to put into practice measures introduced as part of the “glass pocket” program in 2003 and in an act on the accessibility of information approved in 2005.

Central and local government procurements pose the greatest risk for corruption in Hungary. Failing to implement fully transparency measures will undermine the confidence of all Hungarians in the long term, TI warned. (MTI – Econews)
