Recently, the COVID-19 crisis proposed new challenges to the release of procurement open data. Municipal, state and the federal government have been purchasing goods and services to combat the coronavirus by emergency procurement. Despite there are many information available there is still challenge to publish complete data in a timely manner and in high quality standards. The Transparency Ranking on Efforts Against Covid-19 developed by TI Brazil showed that emergency procurement information has been published already in open format. In addition, the Federal Government is currently migrating its data into a new website, with the promise that it will provide information on the entire federal administration in only one source.

Despite the amount of public data made available in open formats about public procurement in the Transparency Portal, in the Open Data Portal and in the Government Procurement Portal, there is still no quality standards that guarantee the data is published in good quality and is ready to be reused by stakeholders. Transparency International Brazil highlighted the importance that these portals assess all the published data, to guarantee that datasets have high quality and can be properly used. Also, they noted that it is important to encourage local governments to create their own open data portals and policies, since nowadays there is just a small number of municipal and state governments that do so.
