Big-data techniques to detect and prevent misconduct in public procurement, in real time. This is the aim of SceMaps, which performs a risk assessment based on a vast volume of data it uses to calculate and analyse 17 red flags – risk indicators – that highlight potential irregularities. EU countries spend 14% of their GDP, or around 2 trillion euros, on public procurement each year. A manual analysis of all tenders is impossible. But an automated, real-time risk assessment of the thousands of public contracts awarded every day in Europe makes it easier to prevent corruption and conflicts of interest in public procurement. The SceMaps analytics platform, designed with this objective in mind, is being piloted in Bulgaria, Italy, Romania and Spain and focuses on three highly sensitive sectors: Construction, Wholesale of Fuels and Wholesale of Pharmaceutical Products.
