The Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI), a Georgia-based civil society organization, initiated the project Transparent Public Procurement Rating (TPPR) – Assessing Public Procurement Legislation and the Enforcement Process in the Eurasian Region in 2016 with funding from Open Society Institute Budapest Foundation (OSI) & Hivos. IDFI is currently implementing the project with its own resources and in cooperation with partner organizations from various regions.

The project and its website provide a common standard for assessing public procurement legislation in various countries, identifying problems, and laying the foundation for their reform and development.

In 2020, the Open Government Partnership (OGP) acknowledged TPPR as one of the main sources for monitoring good governance in public procurement and added IDFI with its platform of TPPR as a partner organization of OGP in the area of public procurement.

Originally focusing on Eastern Partnership countries, the TPPR network currently operates globally, with 42 countries being part of the project.

TPPR's global partners include the Open Contracting Partnership, a silo-busting collaboration across governments, businesses, civil society, and technologists to open up and transform government contracting worldwide. OCP brings open data and open government together to ensure public money is spent openly, fairly and effectively. It focuses on public contracts as they are the single biggest item of spending by most governments. OCP is an independent not-for-profit working in over 50 countries.

The project is being implemented by the following organizations:
