Due to significant inflation in the value of the Argentine peso, an additional field (currentValue) provides an inflation coefficient. Extensions to OCDS include bids and work details.

Data quality

Summary

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

  • Releases tags are not used correctly (most use only the planning tag when they are clearly ahead in the contracting process)
  • Releases dates are not used correctly, as they correspond to the date when the data was consulted.
  • Empty lists and structures are not omitted from data
  • Some fields are filled way ahead in time, like contract titles, when the data suggest the process is still in the planning stage.

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.
