Our story

We’re a team with a big goal: to collect every public tender and contract in the world and make it freely and openly available to everyone.

Procurement often has access to valuable data, but frequently fails to use the data to deliver better outcomes, both for suppliers and buyers.

We exist to use data to improve a a market valued at £13trn a year.

Our analysis can predict poor performance, bad tendering and new savings opportunities. We can monitor market efficiency and look for new suppliers to increase competition.

Modern statistical analysis techniques have transformed finance, sport and agriculture; it is time for procurement to catch up, to gather better data and use it to deliver better services and better value for its citizens.
