Ecuador: Servicio Nacional de Contratación Pública de Ecuador (SERCOP)

The Servicio Nacional de Contratación Pública (SERCOP) began publishing information on COVID-19 emergency purchases made in the Sistema Oficial de Contratación Pública del Ecuador (SOCE). However, it currently publishes its general public procurement data on Ecuador’s open procurement portal.

SERCOP publishes information on the implementation of the pre-contractual and contractual phases of the public procurement procedures carried out in the systems:

Sistema Oficial de Contratación Pública del Ecuador, Módulo de Compras Corporativas del Sector Salud and Módulo de Compras Corporativas de Alimentación Escolar, in Ecuador’s open procurement portal. Information on procurement methods included and other issues in the transformation of the data to be taken into account can be found on the portal’s methodological notes site.

Data quality

Summary

The dataset has some quality issues to be aware of, especially:

  • There are repeated id values in awards/items. This duplication comes from the source data.
  • For certain processes, the id of parties does not match buyer/id.
  • In some procurement processes the date of each award and contract is prior to the release date.

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.
