Similar to its Freedom of Information rankings, PPDC launched an Open Contracting Compliance Ranking (OCCR) that benchmarked Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) on their compliance to disclosing procurement details as required by the Open Contracting Data Standards (OCDS) on Nigeria’s Open Contracting Portal (NOCOPO)
The MDAs were ranked based on the following criteria
Disclosure of 2020 procurement plans and the;
Availability of 2019 procurement records.
To ensure a fair and accurate process, PPDC enlisted the services of the Present Lab to validate the results of the ranking. The validation was done manually through the citizens portal on NOCOPO.
Coming in first position was the Federal University of Gashua, and following closely in 2nd place was Usman Danfodio University Teaching Hospital.
