RECORD project aims to reduce corruption risk by analysing local level public procurement processes and tackling inefficient spending of public funds.
Project activities include assessment of institutional capacities and national regulation in order to develop a toolkit that can be used by policymakers, civil society organizations, and journalists alike to monitor procurements and to identify corruption risks.
This monitoring tool will be made available for use in other Member States, providing EU members with a free, open source tool to support legal and practical measures and as well as advocacy to combat corruption.
The project will develop a series of recommendations for policy makers and legislators in local and national governments and for the EU on the legal framework for public procurement, beneficial ownership, access to information, monitoring of EU funds, and protection of whistleblowers.
RECORD is funded by the European Union and coordinated by five NGOs based in four European countries: Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Spain.
