  • All open tenders
  • All procedures with an estimated value at or above the following thresholds, except when using a list of pre-qualified suppliers or when limited tendering is exceptionally allowed:
    • $680,000 for goods and services
    • $9,584,000 for works
  • All contracts with a value at or above $150,000 (including VAT) within 45 working days of being concluded

Accredited agencies must also publish an annual procurement plan on eTendering.

Access data

This OCDS dataset is available for download in JSON, Excel or CSV format. You can download the data for contracting processes in a specific year or for all time.

JSON

Each contracting process is represented as one line of JSON text in the .jsonl file.

The .jsonl file is compressed using Gzip. Windows users need 7-Zip, WinRAR or WinZip to decompress the .gz file.

Excel

Each contracting process is represented as one row in the main sheet. Other sheets link to it via the _link_main column.

Excel files can have at most 1,048,576 rows. If a year is missing, it had too many rows.

CSV

Each contracting process is represented as one row in the main.csv file. Other files link to it via the _link_main column.

The .csv files are archived using tar and compressed using Gzip. Windows users need 7-Zip, WinRAR or WinZip to decompress the .tar.gz file.
