Making central government procurement information publicly available
Central government procurement information to be made publicly available
In line with the aims of the action programme, data on central government procurement will now be published as open data.
The information content consists of public information on procurements, indicating the nature and source of purchases by central government organisations. The service (tutkihankintoja.fi) was launched in September 2017 and has been developed further with the aid of feedback received. At the end of 2017, the Finnish version of the service was joined by other language versions (Swedish and English) and new kinds of illustrated reports were added along with an open interface for procurement data.
The scope for expanding the information available in the service is also being examined, as is the possibility of releasing information on competitive tendering.
