First, each contract (from conception to budget, contract, award and execution) is assigned a unique identifier.
Second, using a set of user-friendly visualization tools, comparisons can be made between budgets and eventual contract sums, contracts without prior budget allocations can be easily identified, the completion rates of various contractors can be seen etc.
Budeshi (which is Hausa for "Open it") is a dedicated site that links budget and procurement data to various public services. It is accessible to the public to interact with and make their own comparisons.
In a bid to make information around public contracts and the procurement process more coherent, Budeshi is an attempt to demonstrate the Open Contracting Data Standards (OCDS) across the public procurement value chain.
