Wired UK, the influential IT magazine, devotes a 5,000-word article to Ukraine’s ProZorro online procurement system, calling it “the world’s most transparent platform for government spending.”

Wired UK, the influential IT magazine, devotes a 5,000-word article to Ukraine’s ProZorro online procurement system, calling it “the world’s most transparent platform for government spending.” Noting that government purchases account for 16% percent of European GDP. author Rowland Manthorpe says Britain has much to learn from ProZorro. He quotes Henri Verdier, chief technology officer of France, saying of ProZorro: “It’s the gold standard.” Although ProZorro faces political opposition from Rada populists who want “buy Ukrainian, pay Ukrainians,” Wired says “on ProZorro, 80 per cent of suppliers are SMEs.” User friendly for businesses and cost cutting for budgeters, ProZorro is being studied by reformers in Moldova and Belarus.
