USAID partner University Research Company and the Albanian Supreme Audit Institution launched an algorithmic tool to analyze the Albanian Public Procurement Agency’s (PPAs) data on purchasing activity by healthcare institutions from January 2016.  Developed by the Albanian Institute of Science, the tool has been deployed on-line and when applied to PPA’s national database, can help users identify or “Red Flag” unusual activities and trends that may be the result of illegal, unethical behaviors, favoritism, lack of competition, and/or unequal competition.
