Making contracted companies traceable
Match companies’ IDs in national statistics with procurement data of international organisations.
The story behind the project
OpenMultilaterals has done a terrific job scraping and synthesising procurement data of international organisations. For all contracted companies, we know at least the name and the country of origin. To do a proper analysis, though, it would be useful to complement this information with other firm-level data.
Drawing from the OpenCorporates database, we intend to match the name and the country of the contracted companies with their ID in national statistics. In this way, we can put at the disposal of interested users a tool to link procurement data of international organisations to firm-level data in national statistics.
