CompraNet is an information system in Mexico through which citizens can openly search about purchases made with federal government resources at a national level, and its mysterious suspension opened the door for opposition cries against the leftist government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) of lack of transparency and potential corruption and misallocations of funds.

More than 400 contracts are traded daily on CompraNet, which would mean expenses of almost 3 million pesos per minute.
