The TED SIMAP platform aggregates information about European public procurement and a specific database contains all COVID-19 related tenders: https://simap.ted.europa.eu/web/simap/covid-related-tenders.
In this panel Maria Manuela Cruz, head of unit at the Publications Office of the European Union Directorate C – Access to and reuse of public information, will tell us how the COVID-19 related tenders’ database has been conceived and how an investigative journalist can make the best out of it.
Civio.es investigative journalist Eva Belmonte has a long experience on digging deeper on tenders and procurement in the health sector. She’ll share with us her tips on how to research this key aspect of healthcare, and what mistakes we should be avoiding.
