PCIJ - Using investigative reporting to develop an accountability audit to reveal data gaps, irregularities, and levels of completeness of information for reforms

PCIJ is addressing the challenge that open contracting-related data disclosed by various government agencies in the Philippines are uneven and do not relate to each other. The project develops an accountability audit which yields evidence on data gaps, irregularities, and levels of completeness of information, to further account for points of interests, use value of data, and conflicts of stakeholders (in government, business, and civil society). PCIJ employs its expertise in investigative reporting to engage stakeholders, using the data audit reports, to outline possible reforms in policy and practices in data disclosure to pave the way for opportunities to pursue Open Contracting in the Philippines.
