Developed in cooperation with Open Contracting Partnership, the technical cooperation project aims to pilot a novel concept of smart public contract registers in local government in Poland. A new model of smart contract register aims to fulfil mandatory policy requirements on the public procurement transparency safeguards and bring together the latest open data concepts and new open data standard for public procurement - Open Contracting Data Standard (OCDS) to create a multi-purpose machine-readable online data resource on public procurement market in local government in Poland.

The smart register shall include data on low and high-value public contracts in the local government in Poland. It shall collect data online in the OCDS open data format and use business intelligence technologies to provide local government public buyers with analytical tools to work with this data. To encourage popular use, the register will integrate a set of tools for public procurement officers in the local government in respect to public procurement statistical analysis, public procurement market analysis and mandatory periodical reporting. For municipalities with more substantial public procurement data resources, additional online tools for public procurement monitoring will be made available.

The smart public contract register will be developed at Polish Town Association, and targets members of the Association, but will be available to interested local government bodies committed to open data and wishing to benefit from the OCDS analytical tools for public procurement.
