Links I Liked [Public Procurement]

1. More info about the "Crown Marketplace" for local authorities. Not very juicy, but Central Government keeps pushing for lowering participation barriers.

2. Procurement of reactors in Hungary appears to fall prey of procurement rules. Although to be honest the biggest problem appears to be related with State Aid.

3. Northern Ireland sets up Open Data portal. Website looks good but sadly it contains zero information about procurement, although the spending data may be useful.

4. World Bank has reservations about procurement capabilities in developing countries. The Benchmarking Report is here.
