Plateau State does not publish data that uses any OCDS extensions. They do publish some additional fields as a result of mapping errors, such as:

  • buyer/roles
  • tender/procurementCategory
  • awards/suppliers/roles

Additionally, Plateau State uses an additional codelist value in the Award Criteria codelist which appears to result from a data collection error:

  • -- Select Criteria --
