Access to open data and data analysis tools on public procurement is essential, both for civil society in the monitoring process and for regulators who can use the information to generate statistical reports and develop data-driven policies. In this respect, the approval of the new Regulation on low-value procurement and the transition to an electronic format will allow monitors to improve national statistics on public procurement and thus find easier solutions to identifying and minimizing risk indicators, and streamlining procurement processes at the level of all contracting authorities, believes Diana Enachi, expert in public procurement.
