Links I Liked [Public Procurement]

1. Smart contracts are coming to Wall Street, courtesy of the block chain. This is the first concrete example I have seen of the blockchain being used as a contract ledger. I stand by earlier comments that this technology would be great in procurement.

2. European Commission makes procurement data more accessible. Peter Smith reports on the EU Open Data Portal. I had not noticed the report scorecard produced by the Commission and am still a little bit puzzled by the methodology.

3. World Bank wants to use procurement data more effectively. Amen.

4. Procurement Challenge in Bristol Brings Evaluation Methodology Issues Into Focus.

5. UK tax authorities go after contractors. We'll see.
