October 2018 update: The bureau of public procurement has established an e-procurement department with a dedicated staff, this department handles all procurement data and accessible ON REQUEST through their website, perhaps this has not gone beyond the pilot stage which was done with the Universal Basic Education Commission and other five ministries . The Nigeria Open Contracting Portal (NOCOPO) has been launched, this platform opens up public procurement in Nigeria for increased disclosure of procurement information to all stakeholders with a view to ensuring improved transparency and competition, prevent corruption, enhance active citizen participation towards achieving better service delivery and improved ease of doing business in Nigeria.

June 2018 update: Governmental agencies are urged to follow Open Contracting Data Standards but there is no evidence that they do. http://www.budeshi.ng/home/data collects data on open contracts. While between 2016-17 3934 contracts were monitored, there are no entries for 2017.
