Out of 425 submissions from 114 countries, a careful review of a panel of experts and thematic partners resulted in a total of 30 finalists over different categories.
Layertech’s OCDex Project is one of the 7 finalists in the Anti-Corruption and Open Government category.
OCDex Project was supported by Hivos from 2018 to 1st quarter of 2020, and is developed (and maintained) by Layertech developers and partner researchers from the Academe and industry professionals. The project leverages Information Communications Technology (ICT) and Data Science and Analytics, to reveal trends, red-flags, in Philippine government procurement. The insights and tools developed in the OCDex project aim to empower organizations, small businesses, local governments, and the public, to use government data to monitor public procurement and service delivery.
“Data science and ICT tools are leveraged by large corporations to make their processes more efficient and save valuable company resources. Why not give this power to the public? To small businesses? To those who can’t afford to hire expensive consultants?”
