This is a unified portal that reflects information on government spending in the form of dashboards, maps and infographics.
E-services[edit | edit source]
Citizens with only basic knowledge of government procurement processes and basic computer skills can visit the website and understand the information easily. The information is continuously updated when a contract between a business enterprise and a government agency is signed. Ordinary citizens can see an overview of the government budget allocation, government spending strategies and how the overall budget is actually spent with only few clicks.
If citizens suspect or find delays, fraud or corruption in any projects, they can fill out official complaints to the Open Sector Office of the Anti-Corruption Commission or to the office of the Prime Minister.
Open Data[edit | edit source]
Citizens can also access the details of government procurement projects in each province by clicking on the map. For example, in Chiang Rai Province in the northern part of Thailand, there were 36,505 government procurement projects in Fiscal Year 2016 from 931 government agencies with the total budget of 8,007.34 million baht.
The significant details of each procurement project presented on the website include:
- the responsible agency;
