2022, Paper: "After the 2014 uprising against widespread corruption under former Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych, a group of civic activists and data experts decided to overhaul government procurement. Their efforts produced an open-source e-procurement system, ProZorro (“transparency” in Ukrainian), and a community of citizens and government buyers, Dozorro (“watchdog” in Ukrainian), that analyzes contracting data, flags high-risk deals and irregularities, and reports them to government authorities. Created with the help of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the U.S. Agency for International Development, ProZorro has helped Ukraine save almost $6 billion in public funds since October 2017, according to the December 2021 U.S. Strategy on Countering Corruption."
