Data quality

Summary

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

  • The original publication includes some broken JSON files excluded from the data registry.
  • Some tenders have the tender/tenderPeriod/startDate later than tender/tenderPeriod/endDate.
  • Unlikely dates like 1900-01-01T00:00:00-06:00 were found in:
    • release/tender/tenderPeriod/startDate
    • release/awards/date
    • release/contracts/dateSigned
  • There are discrepancies between the Organization’s identifiers and the array of parties.
  • There are duplicated identifiers in fields like:
    • releases/awards/items
    • releases/contracts/implementation/transactions
    • releases/tender/tenderers
