Budeshi monitors financial contracts and allows for advocacy for local primary health care centres. Budeshi is a dedicated web platform that links budget and procurement data to various public services using the Open Contracting Data Standards (OCDS). The Budeshi platform is primarily being used to demonstrate to public institutions the utility of using uniform data standards to publish and report information across stages in the procurement value chain.
Budeshi gives users access to procurement data such as budget amounts, contract amounts, contractor details, project location, e.t.c from over 90 Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in Nigeria at the federal level. Information uploaded on the portal is obtained through freedom of information requests sent to these MDAs in line with the Freedom of Information Act (2011). We make over 300 FOI requests yearly and update the platform with information received from these requests.
