Data quality

Summary

The dataset has quality issues to take into account, notably:

  • The “contract” tag is not included in releases containing contract information.
  • The tender/awardCriteria field includes deprecated values.
  • The tender/procurementMethod field indicates “selective” as the method in some processes that are direct contracts (sole-source).
  • The information disclosed in tender/submissionMethodDetails corresponds to the tender/procurementMethodDetails.
  • The tender/mainProcurementCategory field only includes the code “goods” in all processes, even when the process involves contracting a service.

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.
