Hungary urged to create public procurement database
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.
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)
