Annual reports on public procurement by Japanese government

 The Cabinet Office publishes an annual report, called ‘Japan's Government Procurement: Policy and Achievements Annual Report - Toward Government Procurement Open to the World -  in May of each year.  The publication consists of English language information related to Government Procurement stipulations, results of an annual government procurement survey, recent trends around government procurement and various reference materials.

The statistics are limited to procurement of goods and services by national government entities and directly affiliated organizations higher above the threshold of 100,000 SDRs.
