Abstract: Lately, many governments have adopted policies and mechanisms for making open data available to citizens, in order to increase the transparency of state administration and institutions. The usage of these data is hampered by the incorrect, incomplete and incoherent nature of the information.
The purpose of this paper is to summarize the general steps that are needed in order to transform raw open data that contain errors to consistent data. These steps are used to correct the open data published by the Romanian government regarding public contracts funded by European Union, supporting entities interested in using these data.
