Project’s main objectives and results:
PCIJ is addressing the challenge that open contracting-related data disclosed by various government agencies in the Philippines are uneven and do not relate to each other. The project develops an accountability audit which yields evidence on data gaps, irregularities, and levels of completeness of information. PCIJ employs its expertise in investigative reporting to outline possible reforms in data disclosure to pave the way for opportunities to pursue Open Contracting in the Philippines.
