Detecting collusion in goverment procurement contracts
Manuel Aragonés, Thalía Guerra, Roberto Sánchez and Mónica Zamudio
Since 2002, the Mexican Federal government handles most of its procurement biddings through a transactional platform called Compranet. Even though most of the information in the platform is public, authorities and organizations dedicated to fight corruption do not have a technical framework to better allocate their resources into cases.
Our project consisted in developing an interactive dashboard for investigators to track particular contracts and to filter out low-risk cases.
