Tender Champions

Through combining different kinds of publicly available information – public procurement and company data, ownership structure, public offices held, and relevant media coverage – into one single database, the Tender Champion project ran by Transparency Internation (TI) Hungary aims to bring more transparency into the way public money is spent in Hungary. The project focuses attention on two big problems: the fact that a relatively small number of organisations account for a large proportion of Hungary’s public procurement market, and the high number of cases where a conflict of interest is suspected. These two factors have a great impact on the functioning of the public procurement market by determining who can have access to hefty contracts and what additional advantages the participants can rely on through the public positions they hold. The platform includes information about 2,500 companies, the approximately 34,000 public procurement contracts they won between 2019 and 2021, and the final owners. See our analysis in English on the latest findings.
