An introduction to ProZorro, a youth-initiated platform in Ukraine which enables the users to see how state institutions are spending their money.

The platform serves as an intermediary between the governmental body and potential sellers offering the best price for the products or services the state needs.

The advantage of the system is that everyone can check who is offering what and at which price, so ProZorro minimizes corruption and helps save taxpayers’ money.
